Course Description

Quadratic functions graph

Getting Ready for Calculus is a non-credit course designed as a preparation for university-level mathematics. This course is for you if you lack a solid mathematics background and/or skills and find that you need to take more mathematics to reach your educational and/or career goals. In designing this course, the Department of Mathematics recognizes the diverse mathematical backgrounds and concerns of students. The material in this course spans Grade 9 through to and including part of the OAC Calculus course. The course starts with a basic review of algebra from Grades 9 and 10, and then it focuses on the mathematical material from Grades 10, 11 and 12 that allows the introduction of material from the OAC Calculus course. This design allows you to develop a more solid grounding in the mathematics that is needed for university-level mathematics courses.
