Course: MCR3U, Functions
Level: University Preparation
Semester: 1, 2017-2018
Teacher Name: Mr. Hamilton
This course introduces the mathematical concept of the function by extending students’ experiences with linear and quadratic relations. Students will investigate properties of discrete and continuous functions, including trigonometric and exponential functions; represent functions numerically, algebraically, and graphically; solve problems involving applications of functions; investigate inverse functions; and develop facility in determining equivalent algebraic expressions. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.
Prerequisite: Principles of Mathematics, Grade 10, Academic
The Flipped Classroom
For at least the first two units of this course, we will be doing a flipped classroom. That means that lessons will be watched at home and traditional homework and learning activities will be done in the classroom. Check out this short video to learn more!
