Hey there!

It really does depend on where you plan on going (which University/College and city/province) because the math requirements will vary. I'm not too sure what to tell you about which math course is easiest or better for you since I don't know where you live.
If you're in Ontario, here is one example from a school of their nursing requirements for grade 12 applicants:

Completion of the OSSD (or equivalent) including:

English U
One of [b]Advanced Functions U, Calculus U and Vectors U or Mathematics of Data Management U
Biology U
Chemistry U
Two additional Grade 12 U or M courses to total 6

My school (University of Western ontario) only requires grade 11 as the 4 pre-reqs:

Applicants Presenting the Ontario Grade 12 Diploma
Applicants must have a minimum of six U or M-level credits. including:

REQUIRED - 65% in each of
Grade 12 U English
Grade 12 U Biology
Grade 12 U Chemistry
And 65% in one of:
Grade 11 Functions and Applications (MCF3M)
Grade 11 Functions (MCR 3U)

I hope that this is helpful information... if not, I would suggest calling the university or college you would like to attend for admission information; they will gladly answer all of your questions.

Good luck!!!!:tongue:

I took both data and functions. I don't find that I really use either (so far, I do know you take stats in year 3), so I would say go with data since it's easier. This is the only math we've done all year:

Desire/Have x supply = amount

Calorie calculations

and equations like this in physiology:

Filtered load = GFR x plasma concentration

So as long as you passed grade 9 math I think you're good lol

thanks! I'm going to do data just because its probably the easiest out of the three ( functions, data, calculus) and I would hate not to do well in math in gr 12! :cheers: :cheers:
