Functions – Grade 11 (University Preparation Level)

The Grade 11 university preparation course, Functions, builds on the concepts and skills developed in the Grade 9 and 10 academic mathematics courses. The course is designed to prepare students for Grade 12 mathematics courses that lead to one of many university programs, including science, engineering, social sciences, liberal arts, and education. The concept of functions is introduced in the Characteristics of Functions strand of this course and extended through the investigation of two new types of relationships in the Exponential Functions and Trigonometric Functions strands. The Discrete Functions strand allows students, through the study of different representations of sequences and series, to revisit patterning and algebra concepts introduced in elementary school and make connections to financial applications involving compound interest and ordinary simple annuities.
