Course Description MCV4U

Course Title:Calculus and Vectors
Course Code: MCV4U
Grade: 12
Course Type: University Preparation
Credit Value: 1
Prerequisite: MHF4U (Note: MHF4U may be take concurrently)

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 three dimensional space; broaden their understanding
of rates of change to include the derivatives of polynomial, sinusoidal, exponential, rational, and radica
l 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.
