ENG3U- English, Grade 11, University Preparation

The goal of the Grade 11 English University Preparation course is the further development and consolidation of language, literacy, and research skills in preparation for university studies. The Ontario Curriculum divides the English program into four strands: Oral Communication, Reading & Literature Studies, Writing, and Media Studies. This course emphasizes the consolidation of the literacy, communication, and critical and creative thinking skills necessary for success in academic and daily life. Students will analyse a range of challenging literary texts from various periods, countries and cultures; interpret and evaluate informational and graphic texts; and create oral, written and media texts in a variety of forms. Throughout the course students will be encouraged to examine texts through a variety of social lenses and apply that critical analysis to other forms of texts and media. An important focus will be on using academic language coherently and confidently, selecting the reading strategies best suited to particular texts and particular purposes for reading and developing greater control in writing ENG4U, English, Grade 12, University Preparation.

Prerequisite: English, Grade 10, Academic (ENG2D)

ENG4U – English, Grade 12, University Preparation

This course builds on the knowledge and skills that students have gained in ENG3U such as literacy, critical thinking and communication skills. The skills that students will continue to develop in this course will help them succeed in both academic and daily life. Students will study a variety of texts in order to improve their understanding of form and style. Similarly, these texts will help students further improve their reading and analysis skills. This course emphasizes consolidation of literacy, critical thinking, and communication skills. Students will analyze a range of challenging texts from various time periods, countries, and cultures; write analytical and argumentative essays and a major paper for an independent literary research project; and apply key concepts to analyse media works. An important focus will be on understanding academic language and using it coherently and confidently in discussion and argument. Lastly, students will be expected to improve their writing skills by learning how to write coherently within essay and creative form. Examples of texts that students may be encountering in this course include Hamlet, Death of a Salesman. This course is mandatory for students who wish to attend University after graduating from their secondary education.

Prerequisite: English, Grade 11, University (ENG3U)

MCR3U- Functions, Grade 11, University Preparation

This course introduces students to mathematical functions by building on their knowledge and experiences with linear and quadratic relations. Students will investigate trigonometric and exponential functions, represent functions numerically, algebraically, and graphically; solve problems involving applications of functions and investigate inverse functions. Students will also learn how to determine equivalent algebraic expressions. Students will learn to reason and communicate mathematically. Additionally, students will investigate discrete functions such as sequences and series and differentiate from continuous functions. Students will learn to solve financial applications involving compound interest and annuities.

Prerequisite: Principles of Mathematics, Grade 10, Academic (MPM2D)

MHF4U – Advanced Function, Grade 12, University Preparation

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.
Prerequisite: Functions (MCR3U) or Mathematics for College Technology (MCT4C)

MCV4U – Calculus and Vectors, Grade 12, University Preparation

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 modeling 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.
Prerequisite: Advanced Functions, Grade 12 (MHF4U) (Note: MHF4U may be taken concurrently).

MDM4U – Mathematics of Data Management, Grade 12 University Preparation

This course broadens students’ understanding of mathematics as it relates to managing information. Students will apply methods for organizing large amounts of information; apply counting techniques, probability, and statistics in modeling and solving problems; and carry a culminating project that integrates the expectations of the course and encourages perseverance and independence. Students planning to pursue university programs in business, the social sciences, or the humanities will find this course of particular interest.
Prerequisite: Functions (MCR3U) or Functions and Applications (MCF3M)

SBI4U – Biology, Grade 12, University Preparation

This course enables students to deepen their understanding of the concepts and theories of physics. Students will further explore the laws of dynamics and energy transformations, and will investigate electrical, gravitational, and magnetic fields; electromagnetic radiation; and the interface between energy and matter. Students will be able to describe motion and the interaction in the environment by the end of this course. They will further develop inquiry skills, for example learning how the interpretation of experimental data can provide indirect evidence to support the development of a scientific model. Students will also consider the impact on society and the environment of technological applications of physics.
Prerequisite: Physics, Grade 11, University (SPH3U)

SCH4U – Chemistry, Grade 12, University Preparation

This course enables students to deepen their understanding of chemistry through the study of organic chemistry, energy changes and rates of reaction, chemical equilibrium, atomic and molecular structure, and electrochemistry. Students will make connections between the theories of chemical structures, properties and interactions with practice in laboratory experiments. Experiments may either be virtual laboratories or from case studies. Students will further develop problem-solving and laboratory skills as they investigate chemical processes, while refining their ability to communicate scientific information. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of chemistry in daily life, and on evaluating the impact of chemical technology on the environment.
Prerequisite: Chemistry, Grade 11, University (SCH3U)

SPH4U – Physics, Grade 12, University Preparation

This course allows students to further develop an in-depth study of the concepts and processes that occur in biological systems. Students will study theory and conduct investigations in the areas of biochemistry, metabolic processes, molecular genetics, homeostasis and population of dynamics. Emphasis will be placed on the achievement of detailed knowledge and the refinement of skills needed for further study in various branches of the life sciences and related fields.

Prerequisite: Biology, Grade 11, University (SBI3U)
