MCR3U Functions, Grade 11, University Preparation
MCT4C Mathematics for College Technology, Grade 12, College Preparation
This is a credit course for University-bound students. 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.
This is an OSSD credit course that has been developed based on the following Ontario Ministry of Education documents
The course will include instruction using PowerPoint and screen recordings. There will be ample opportunities for students and the teacher to engage in 1 to 1 correspondence and discussion. Independent, self-regulated learning will also be required along with teacher facilitation.
Example exercises and problems will be included in worksheet format, also requiring individual research from external sources.
The assessment and evaluation strategies of our school follows the Ministry of Education's Growing Success document. Growing Success articulates the vision the Ministry has for the purpose and structure of assessment and evaluation techniques.
Assessments help to monitor student progression and provide reflection and feedback. Evaluation is the process of judging the quality of student work in relation to the achievement chart categories and criteria, and assigning a percentage grade to represent that quality. Evaluation is based on gathering evidence of student achievement through:
|Knowledge & Understanding||Thinking||Communication||Application|
The Final Grade
You can safely enroll and try this course. We do not notify your day school in any way when you register and enroll in our courses. Only when you explicity instruct us to share your grades will we send your registration information and your grades to your day school.
In addition, you can safely drop this course without any academic penalty at any time before the first report card. Once you have received the first report card, you will still have five (5) days to drop this course without any academic penalty. The first report card is issued right after the midterm point of this course.
The midterm point of this course is based on work completed rather than time elapsed, since this is a self-paced course. It is roughly after the first half of the assessments in the course, at which point you will have a fairly good idea of how well you are doing.
At this point, you will have to manually indicate, by pressing an acknowledgement button, that you would like to continue in the course and that you would like us to send your registration information and your marks to your day school.
As a courtesy to our students, our system requires you to manually indicate that you would like to progress beyond the midterm point and receive the first report card. This safety feature is designed to ensure that you do not accidentally pass the deadline to drop the course without academic penalty.
After receiving your first report card, we will also send you notifications via email regarding the 5 day deadline to drop the course.Read more about ministry guidelines regarding course withdrawals and retakes.
