|English – Advanced Placement||ENG4UP|
|Students in this course will meet the same curriculum expectations and cover the same workload as students in ENG 4UI. This course is designed for independent learners who are highly motivated in the area communications, including reading, writing, oral communications and media studies. Some course content will be studied at a deeper level to enhance critical thinking skills in preparation for university.
CREDIT EQUIVALENTS: ENG4UE – eLearn – English (University) is a similar course and you will not receive credit for taking both.
ENG4UI – English (University) is a similar course and you will not receive credit for taking both.
|COURSE NOTE: COURSE NOTE: This course is recommended for students seeking enrichment and whose average in English exceeds the provincial average of 75%. Students need to complete an AP English Referral Form from the English Department or Guidance Office, have their current English teacher fill it out, and submit it to guidance.|

|Advanced Functions, Grade 12, Pre-Advanced Placement||MHF4UP|
|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.
COURSE NOTE: The purpose of this Pre-Advanced placement course is to enhance students’ foundation in reasoning with algebraic symbols and working with algebraic structures. In the course students will deepen their knowledge in algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and elementary functions. These functions include linear, polynomial, rational exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric and piecewise-defined functions. Students will improve their skills in algebra of functions, the composition of functions and the graphs of functions. Students will deepen their knowledge in the language of functions (domain and range, odd and even, periodic, symmetry, zeros, intercepts and descriptors such as increasing and decreasing).
|COURSE NOTE: The purpose of this Pre-Advanced Placement course is to provide mathematics students the opportunity to broaden the scope of their mathematics learning at their grade level, and to expand and enrich their problem solving skills. This course serves as a foundation for students wishing to take AP Calculus in grade 12.|

|Calculus and Vectors, Grade 12, Advanced Placement||MCV4UP|
|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.
COURSE NOTE: AP Calculus is structured around three big ideas: limits, derivatives, and integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The concept of limits is foundational; the understanding of this fundamental tool leads to the development of more advanced tools and concepts that prepare students to grasp the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, a central idea of AP Calculus.
