IBDP Group 5 - Math

  • IBDP Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches HL A/B/C/D 19725A/B/C/D-IB

    This class is a two-year college-level course (four semesters), started in 11th grade. This course can be taken as part of the IB Diploma Programme OR as an individual course separate from the Diploma Programme.

    Analysis and Approaches HL is intended for students who wish to pursue studies in mathematics at university or subjects that have a large mathematical content; it is for students who enjoy developing mathematical arguments, problem solving and exploring real and abstract applications, with and without technology.  

    This course recognizes the need for analytical expertise in a world where innovation is increasingly dependent on a deep understanding of mathematics. This course includes topics that are both traditionally part of a pre-university mathematics course (for example, functions, trigonometry, calculus) as well as topics that are amenable to investigation, conjecture and proof, for instance the study of sequences and series, and proof by induction. The course allows the use of technology, as fluency in relevant mathematical software and hand-held technology is important regardless of choice of course. However, Mathematics: analysis and approaches has a strong emphasis on the ability to construct, communicate and justify correct mathematical arguments.

    COURSE NOTE:  This class is a two-year college-level course (four semesters), started in 11th grade. Each semester builds upon the previous semester in content and skills. This course can be taken as part of the IB Diploma Programme OR as an individual course separate from the Diploma Programme. 

    Assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning. The most important aims of assessment in the Diploma Programme are that it should support curricular goals and encourage appropriate student learning. Both external and internal assessments are used in the Diploma Programme. IB examiners mark work produced for external assessment, while work produced for internal assessment is marked by teachers and externally moderated by the IB.  An optional final exam is available for college credit in the spring of senior year.

    CREDIT: 0.5 TYPE: International Baccalaureate GRADE: 11-12
    PREREQUISITE:  07120A/B - Pre-Calculus or 07150A/B - Honors Precalculus or higher   
    COREQUISITES: Grade 11 takes 19725A/B - IBDP Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches HL.  Grade 12 takes 19725C/D - IBDP Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches HL

    IBDP Mathematics: Applications and Interpretation SL A/B/C/D 19735A/B/C/D-IB

    This class is a two-year college-level course (four semesters), started in 11th grade.  This course can be taken as part of the IB Diploma Programme OR as an individual course separate from the Diploma Programme.

    Applications and interpretation SL, is designed for students who enjoy describing the real world and solving practical problems using mathematics; those who are interested in harnessing the power of technology alongside exploring mathematical models and enjoy the more practical side of mathematics. This course is intended to prepare students for a career in social sciences, humanities, languages, or arts.
