Mathematics

MHF4U, Advanced Functions, Grade 12 University Preparation


Course Description: 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.

Prerequisite: MCR3U, Functions, Grade 11, University Preparation, or MCT4C, Mathematics for College Technology, Grade 12, College Preparation NOTE: Course Description from the Ontario Ministry of Education's Mathematics curriculum document.

MDM4U, Mathematics of Data Management, Grade 12 University Preparation


Course Description: 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. Prerequisite: MCR3U, Functions, Grade 11, University Preparation, or MCF3M, Functions and Applications, Grade 11, University/College Preparation NOTE: Course Description from the Ontario Ministry of Education's Mathematics curriculum document.

MCV4U, Calculus and Vectors, Grade 12 University Preparation


Course Description: 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 or Corequisite: MHF4U, Advanced Functions, Grade 12, University Preparation Corequisites are courses or requirements that must be taken at the same time as another course. At the time of enrolment, students are required to submit documentation confirming that they are enrolled in the appropriate corequisite.

Sciences

SBI4U, Biology, Grade 12 University Preparation


Course Description: This course provides students with the opportunity for in-depth study of the concepts and processes that occur in biological systems. Students will study theory and conduct investigations in the areas of biochemistry, metabolic processes, molecular genetics, homeostasis, and population dynamics. Emphasis will be placed on the achievement of detailed knowledge and the refinement of skills needed for further study in various branches of the life sciences and related fields.

Prerequisite: SBI3U, Biology, Grade 11, University Preparation NOTE: Course Description from the Ontario Ministry of Education's Science curriculum document. Link: http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/curriculum/secondary/2009science11_12.pdf




SCH4U, Chemistry, Grade 12 University Preparation


Course Description: This course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of organic chemistry, the structure and properties of matter, energy changes and rates of reaction, equilibrium in chemical systems, and electrochemistry. Students will further develop their problem-solving and investigation skills as they investigate chemical processes, and will refine their ability to communicate scientific information. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of chemistry in everyday life and on evaluating the impact of chemical technology on the environment.

Prerequisite: SCH3U, Chemistry, Grade 11, University Preparation NOTE: Course Description from the Ontario Ministry of Education's Science curriculum document. Link: http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/curriculum/secondary/2009science11_12.pdf




SPH4U, Physics, Grade 12 University Preparation


Course Description: This course enables students to deepen their understanding of physics concepts and theories. Students will continue their exploration of energy transformations and the forces that affect motion, and will investigate electrical, gravitational, and magnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation. Students will also explore the wave nature of light, quantum mechanics, and special relativity. They will further develop their scientific investigation skills, learning, for example, how to analyse, qualitatively and quantitatively, data related to a variety of physics concepts and principles. Students will also consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment.
