About the course

This course broadens students’ knowledge of functions. Students will examine the properties of polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions, as well as create ways for combining them, increase their understanding of rates of change, and improve their ability to apply these concepts and skills. Students will also improve their understanding of the mathematical procedures required for senior mathematics success. This course is designed for students who are taking Calculus and Vectors as a prerequisite for a university degree, as well as those who want to brush up on their math skills before enrolling in one of the many university programs.

Overrall expectations

By the end of the course you will:

Exponential And Logarithmic Functions

By the end of this course, students will:

  • demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between exponential expressions and logarithmic expressions,
    evaluate logarithms, and apply the laws of logarithms to simplify numeric expressions;
  • identify and describe some key features of the graphs of logarithmic functions, make connections among the numeric, graphical, and algebraic representations of logarithmic functions, and solve related problems graphically;
  • solve exponential and simple logarithmic equations in one variable algebraically, including those in problems arising from real-world applications.
Trigonometric Functions

By the end of this course, students will

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the meaning and application of radian measure
  • make connections between trigonometric ratios and the graphical and algebraic representations of the corresponding trigonometric functions and between trigonometric functions and their reciprocals, and use these connections to solve problems
  • solve problems involving trigonometric equations and prove trigonometric identities.
Polynomial And Rational Functions

By the end of this course, students will


  • identify and describe some key features of polynomial functions, and make connections between the numeric, graphical, and algebraic representations of polynomial functions;
  • identify and describe some key features of the graphs of rational functions, and represent rational functions graphically;
  • solve problems involving polynomial and simple rational equations graphically and algebraically;
  • Demonstrate an understanding of solving polynomial and simple rational inequalities.
Characteristics Of Functions

By the end of this course, students will


  • demonstrate an understanding of average and instantaneous rate of change, and determine, numerically and graphically, and interpret the average rate of change of a function over a given interval and the instantaneous rate of change of a function at a given point;
  • determine functions that result from the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of two functions and from the composition of two functions, describe some properties of the resulting functions, and solve related problems;
  • compare the characteristics of functions, and solve problems by modelling and reasoning with functions, including problems with solutions that are not accessible by standard algebraic techniques
