Calculus and Vectors, Grade 12, University Preparation (MCV4U)

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 threedimensional 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.

Prerequisite: Note: Advanced Functions (MHF4U) must be taken prior to or concurrently with Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U).
