## Description

This single-term accelerated course has been designed for calculus bound students, who have a firm grasp of grade 11 and 12 math skills. Focus is placed on pre-calculus key concepts, assuming students have current knowledge of grade 11 and 12 math concepts. Students requiring review of grade 11 and 12 concepts should take Pre-Calculus Plus (Math 0011.00). Topics are explored in class following a clear, logical progression, with mastery generally occurring after assignments are completed.

## Prerequisite

Recommend at least 80% in grade 11 and 12 math. We encourage you to complete our complimentary math diagnostic. This will assist us to identify your current math strengths.
