Calculus and Vectors MCV4UI
This course builds on students’ previous experience with functions and their developing understanding of rates of change. Students will solve problems involving geometric and algebraic representations of vectors and representations of lines and planes in three-dimensional space; broaden their understanding of rates of change to include the derivatives of polynomial, sinusoidal, exponential, rational, and radical functions; and apply these concepts and skills to the modelling of real-world relationships. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended for students who choose to pursue careers in fields such as science, engineering, economics, and some areas of business, including those students who will be required to take a university-level calculus, linear algebra, or physics course.
CREDIT: 1TYPE: UniversityGRADE: 12
PREREQUISITE: Advanced Functions, Grade 12, University Preparation, must be taken prior to or concurrently with Calculus and Vectors.
CREDIT EQUIVALENTS: MCV4UP - Advanced Placement Calculus is a similar course and you will not receive credit for taking both.
Mathematics of Data Management, Grade 12, University Preparation MDM4UI
This course broadens students’ understanding of mathematics as it relates to managing data. Students will apply methods for organizing and analysing large amounts of information; solve problems involving probability and statistics; and carry out a culminating investigation that integrates statistical concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. Students planning to enter university programs in business, the social sciences, and the humanities will find this course of particular interest.

If there is sufficient student interest, the St. Mary's math department will be offering a double credit in Calculus (MCV4U) and Data Management (MDM4U) with preparation time given to an Advanced Placement examination. This double credit opportunity should be considered an enrichment opportunity and of interest to students pursuing math related university studies. Students interested in this 2 credit package will complete an independent assignment for Data Management (statistics) during the summer of 2012. The Ontario Curriculum for MCV4U will be taught first semester, 2012 and be completed at the end of semester 1 of next school year. Second semester will be the combined curriculum of Ontario's MDM 4U (Probabilty and Probability Distributions) as well as time given in preparation for an Advanced Placement Calculus A/B exam in May, 2013. It is necessary that students have access to a computer with MS Excel as well as the internet during the summer of 2012.
COURSE NOTE: Students are encouraged to download a Student Application for Enriched Programmes Form from the school website and submit the completed form to guidance.
CREDIT: 1TYPE: UniversityGRADE: 12
COREQUISITES: If you take this course, you must also take MCV4UP - Advanced Placement Calculus
CREDIT EQUIVALENTS: MDM4UI - Mathematics of Data Management, Grade 12, University Preparation is a similar course and you will not receive credit for taking both.
Advanced Functions MHF4UI
This course extends students’ experience with functions. Students will investigate the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; develop techniques for combining functions; broaden their understanding of rates of change; and develop facility in applying these concepts and skills. Students will also refine their use of the mathematical processes necessary for success in senior mathematics. This course is intended both for students taking the Calculus and Vectors course as a prerequisite for a university program and for those wishing to consolidate their understanding of mathematics before proceeding to any one of a variety of university programs.
