Specific mathematics courses are required for eligibility to all of the management programs, and almost all of the disciplines in the sciences. It is vital that applicants possess the appropriate mathematical content in order to be properly prepared for university study.
Where a program prerequisite course in Calculus is specified, applicants must present for admission consideration, a completed course or courses with the following content:
Includes concepts of advanced functions. Introduces basic concepts of Calculus. Investigation and application of the properties of polynomial, exponential, and logarithmic functions; understanding of the mathematics associated with rates of change; development of facility with differential calculus as applied to polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Problem solving in a range of applications.
Students whose high school mathematics preparation is strong but does not include Calculus, or whose schools do not offer Calculus or Advanced Placement math in their curriculum, may take the summer non-credit preparation program for university-level mathematics at the U of T St. George campus, contact: PUMP - Preparing for University Math Program
If you are applying to a program that requires university- level Calculus, we recommend that you enrol in the equivalent course at your university or college (if offered).
In some cases, it may be possible to receive admission consideration if Calculus is completed, at least at the high school level.
If you have not taken Calculus in secondary school or the high school Calculus equivalent course in your post secondary studies, you have
extra preparation to do. Please contact the Admissions & Student Recruitment Office directly.
Where a program prerequisite course in Advanced Functions is specified, applicants must present for admission consideration, a completed course or courses with the following content:
Properties of polynomials, rational, logarithmic and trigonometric functions;
rates of changes.
