With over 200 questions that are NOT taken from previous exams, the application covers all the skills and concepts of the IB (International Baccalaureate) Mathematics SL (Standard Level) course and that range from the basic and direct to the challenging. All the answers are provided and the steps leading to the solution are shown. Comments and tips are also provided. Each question is classified regarding the use of the GDC: necessary, optional or GDC free.
The questions have been written by a teacher with a long IB experience and are designed to help the students prepare for their external exam or to help them review the concepts and skills of each of the guide's topics.
-Matrices & Vectors
-Statistics & Probability
The course focuses on introducing important mathematical concepts through the development of mathematical techniques. The intention is to introduce students to these concepts in a comprehensible and coherent way, rather than insisting on the mathematical rigour required for mathematics HL. Students should, wherever possible, apply the mathematical knowledge they have acquired to solve realistic problems set in an appropriate context.
The internally assessed component, the exploration, offers students the opportunity for developing independence in their mathematical learning. Students are encouraged to take a considered approach to various mathematical activities and to explore different mathematical ideas. The exploration also allows students to work without the time constraints of a written examination and to develop the skills they need for communicating mathematical ideas.
This course does not have the depth found in the mathematics HL courses. Students wishing to study subjects with a high degree of mathematical content should therefore opt for a mathematics HL course rather than a mathematics SL course.
