Students can study mathematics at the following levels:

• university

• college

• university/college

• workplace preparation

## Functions, MCR3U (Pre-requisite: MPM2D)

This course introduces the mathematical concept of the function by extending students’ experiences with linear and quadratic relations. Students will investigate properties of discrete and continuous functions, including trigonometric and exponential functions; represent functions numerically, algebraically, and graphically; solve problems involving applications of functions; investigate inverse functions; and develop facility in determining equivalent algebraic expressions. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

## Functions and Applications, MCF3M (Pre-requisite: MFM2P, MPM2D)

This course introduces basic features of the function by extending students’ experiences with quadratic relations.  It focuses on quadratic, trigonometric, and exponential functions and their use in modeling real-world applications.  Students will represent functions numerically, graphically, and algebraically; simplify expressions; solve equations; and solve problems relating to applications.  Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

## (Pre-requisite: MFM2P)

This course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as a problem solving tool in the real world. Students will extend their understanding of quadratic relations; investigate situations involving exponential growth; solve problems involving compound interest; solve financial problems connected with vehicle ownership; develop their ability to reason by collecting, analysing, and evaluating data involving one variable; connect probability and statistics; and solve problems in geometry and trigonometry. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.  (The Ontario Curriculum Grade 11 & 12, Mathematics, 2007, page 67)

## (Pre-requisite: MAT2L, MFM2P)

This course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as it is applied in the workplace and daily life. Students will solve problems associated with earning money, paying taxes, and making purchases; apply calculations of simple and compound interest in saving, investing, and borrowing; and calculate the costs of transportation and travel in a variety of situations. Students will consolidate their mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.
