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 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.
