MCV 4U Calculus and VectorsInstructor: Mrs. D. Desjardins
Welcome to Calculus which deals with problems involving rates of change (differentiation considered in this course) and areas under a graph (integration considered in post secondary courses). Calculus was developed primarily in the 1600's independently by Sir Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz. It plays a major role in solving present day problems in engineering, physics and economics.
Vectors were developed in the late 1800's to help in the study of physics. They are now used extensively in navigation, and by engineers. In this course you will learn basic vector properties and their applications.
