THE ONTARIO CURRICULUM: Mathematics
- In this unit, students will investigate the key properties and characteristics of polynomials and use their findings to form connections between algebraic and graphical representations of polynomial functions. Students will develop skills that can be used to analyze and solve polynomial equations and inequalities.
UNIT TWORational Functions
- In this unit, students will examine the key characteristics of rational functions and use them to develop an understanding of their graphical representations. Students will investigate the different cases where horizontal asymptotes occur and use their understanding to solve rational equations and inequalities.
- In this unit, students will build on their understanding of trigonometry acquired from previous studies of mathematics. Students will develop an understanding of radian measure and conceptualize special triangles and the unit circle in terms of radians. Students will explore advanced trigonometric identities and make connections to the graphs of sine and cosine. These graphs will be used to develop the graphs of tangent, cosecant, secant, and cotangent. Lastly, students will apply the understandings developed in this unit to solve trigonometric equations and real-world problems.
UNIT FOURExponential and Logarithmic Functions
- In this unit, students will review exponential functions and make connections to the logarithmic function by applying an understanding of inverse functions. Students will then learn to write expressions in both exponential and logarithmic form. Students will learn about the laws of logarithms and how they can be applied to solve logarithmic equations. Lastly, students will combine the understandings they develop throughout this unit and apply them to solve real-world problems that can be modelled using exponential and logarithmic functions.
UNIT FIVECombining Functions and Rates of Change
- In this unit, students will begin by examining sums, differences, products, and quotients of functions. Students will then substitute functions into other functions in order to form composite functions. The domain, range, and key characteristics of combined functions will then be explored. Students will then turn their attention to rates of change of functions and investigate how the average rate of change can be used to approximate the instantaneous rate of change of a given function.
FINAL EXAMProctored Exam
- This exam is the final evaluation of MHF4U online. Students need to arrange their final exam 10 days in advance. All coursework should be completed and submitted before writing the final exam, please be advised that once the exam is written, any outstanding coursework will be given a grade of zero. The exam will be two hours. There are two options for taking the exam:
- WRITE EXAM AT BLYTH ACADEMY CAMPUS: If you live close to a Blyth Academy Campus, or if you attend a Blyth Academy Campus, you can take your exam there. Once inside the exam scheduling interface, please click Login/Create Account. Check for an available time and date at the campus of your choosing. The earliest available date will be open within the next 3-5 business days. You cannot book an exam in more than one campus or multiple times at the same campus. You will receive an automatic confirmation email with next steps and exam information. You can cancel and reschedule anytime using the same link.
- USE EXAMITY PROCTORING SERVICE: For a fee of 22 USD*, students can arrange to take their exam in the comfort of their own home, at any time, on any day. Please select Examity Exam in the exam section of your course to set up your Examity profile and schedule your exam. Exams must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. *Price is subject to change.
