IB Mathematics 11 and IB Math Analysis and Approaches SL 12

Course Outline

This course caters to students who already possess knowledge of basic mathematical concepts and are competent in a range of analytical and technical skills.

The majority of these students will be expecting to include mathematics as a component of their university studies, either as a subject in its own right or within courses such as physics, engineering, and technology as they prepare for future studies in subjects such as chemistry, economics, psychology, and commerce. The course has a strong emphasis on the ability to construct, communicate, and justify correct mathematical arguments. Throughout the course students are encouraged to take a considered approach to various mathematical activities and to explore different mathematical ideas.

The course syllabus includes the topics of number and algebra, functions, geometry and trigonometry, statistics and probability, and calculus.

The final grade comprises an external component of 80 percent and an internal component of 20 percent. The internal component (20 percent) is a piece of written work based on an individual Math Exploration on a topic chosen by the student. The external component (80 percent) is a final examination made up of one paper of short response questions with no technology and one paper of short response questions with the aid of technology.
