Calculus 12

Course code: MCALC12---
Credits: 4

Recommended Prerequisite: Pre-Calculus 12, with a grade of B or higher.

Calculus 12 is intended for students planning to take a 1st year Calculus course as part of their post-secondary studies in such disciplines as economics, engineering, mathematics and science.

The course is intended for mathematically capable, hard-working students and will require significant amounts of work outside of class each day (30-60 minutes per night). Students must master many problem-solving skills and amass a large repertoire of problems in order to be successful in post-secondary mathematics courses.

Calculus 12 covers most of the major topics taken in first-year Calculus. It is a great advantage to preview this material in high school as it differs significantly from Pre-Calculus mathematics.

Topics include: Limits; Continuity; The Derivative; Differentiation Techniques; Functions & Graphs; Applied Extrema; Rate of Change Applications; Related Rates; Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions; Derivatives of Exponential & Logarithmic Functions; Antiderivatives; Differential Equations; Area and Volume; Integrals of Exponential & Logarithmic Functions; Enrichment Topics: Trigonometric Integrals; Integration Methods.

Students enrolled in this course have the option of participating in the annual Euclid Mathematics Contest, offered in the spring each year. Top-achieving students may receive post-secondary bursaries and/or special program admission privileges.
