Subject: is it true they are taking out calculus for gr12
does anyone know if this is a fact, i heard around that they are eliminating calculus from the curriculum. and probably just putting advanced functions or are they eliminating the course altogether...

the course is

advanced functions & introductory calculus

are they keeping the course, eliminating the entire course, or are they just eliminating calculus from the curriculum?

i don´t get it, it is suppose to help the students , they are taking away calculus, so what are the students that need the calculus material in university going to do..i mean the high school kids that need calculus in university...they are going to be forced to learn the material in university instead of high school this is such a dumb decision.they think this will help? wtf..can someone clarify this

they are debating whether to take out the calculus course altogether and let the universities teach it(this would be dumb considering that it would probably be harder for the students) or the other optino i believe was to put calculus in a single course , to let it have a course on its own in highschool and advanced fucntions another course...man ontario kids are getting dumber and dumber...highschool calculus is not hard at all. if you are taking it you probably need it for you university program which also involves calculus. these people who are getting below 80 or even 90 are going to get killed in university calculus. such idiots isn´t this a sign telling you , that you are not meant for this program if you are doing so bad in highschool calculus
