Here’s a question we often get: How many credits do you need to graduate from high school in Ontario? The answer is 30 credits— 18 compulsory and 12 optional. You also have to earn 40 hours of community involvement by doing volunteer work and completing the EQAO Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test or the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Course. 

Are you planning to pursue a career in engineering or the fields of economics, business, and engineering? Enroll in MCV4U Calculus and Vectors class. MCV4U is a credit course in Mississauga designed for grade 12 students who plan to pursue higher education. It is a college preparation course that builds on your previous knowledge and experience with calculus and vectors. 

Here are some of the things that you will learn and the skills you will acquire after finishing MCV4U.  

  • Discover more of the essential calculus concepts 

You will be exploring more of the topics introduced in your previous mathematics subjects. Expect to encounter and use a variety of mathematical functions that will help you understand the essential concepts of calculus. You will also investigate the indeterminate form of a limit and learn how to do factoring and rationalization properly.

  • Broaden your understanding of Rates of Change (ROC) 

If you want to be successful in senior-level business subjects, you have to attain a high level of understanding in the topic of ROC. Because it is a crucial financial concept, some business schools will require student candidates to complete an MCV4U course. You will learn how to deal with rates of change problems, including derivatives of polynomial, sinusoidal, exponential, rational, and radical functions. More importantly, you will see how you can apply these concepts in the real world.  

  • Learn vectors and vectors applications

Vector is among the most important (and often one of the hardest) topics that you will study in engineering classes. MCV4U prepares you for it by tackling vectors and scalars, vector properties, vector operations, and plane figure properties. It covers both theories and applications.
