Description

This course builds on students’ previous experience with functions and their developing understanding of rates of change. Students will 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 modeling 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

Who this course is for:

• Anyone who is interested in learning Mathematics
• Anyone who wants to prepare for first year university
• Anyone who wants to master the concepts of Derivatives
