Before studying calculus, all students should complete grade 9 and 10 academic mathematics courses with a high achievement in both.  In your third year of high school, the expectation is that you complete grade 11 university (Functions) course in semester 1, followed by Grade 12 university (Advanced Functions) in Semester 2.
Mathematics Pathway for AP-Calculus

After successfully completing your mathematics courses in your third year of high school, you would be expected to complete AP-Calculus course in semester 1 in your fourth year of high school.  The AP-Calculus exam is written during the first week of May, therefore, weekly AP-Calculus tutorials will be needed to prepare students for the AP Examination.

This pathway for high school mathematics is designed for university-bound students.:  These courses will consist of area of study that included algebra, geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and elementary functions. These functions include linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, and piecewise-defined functions. In particular, before studying calculus, students must be familiar with the properties of functions, the algebra of functions, and the graphs of functions. Students must also understand the language of functions (domain and range, odd and even, periodic, symmetry, zeros, intercepts, and so on) and know the values of the trigonometric functions at the numbers 0, π/6, π/4, π/3, π/2, and their multiples.
