Group 5: Mathematics

Students will be able to choose from two courses. Mathematics: applications and interpretation, or, Mathematics: analysis and approaches. Both courses will provide the students the options of studying the subject at SL or HL.

These courses include core syllabus content for SL along with extended syllabus content within each topic for HL. 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.

Mathematics: applications and interpretation SL/HL

Mathematics: applications and interpretation focuses on introducing important mathematical concepts through the development of mathematical techniques, with a greater emphasis on Topic 2 (Functions) and Topic 4 (Probability and Statistics). Technology will play a large role in this course.

Mathematics: analysis and approaches SL/HL

Mathematics: analysis and approaches also focuses on introducing important mathematical concepts through the development of mathematical techniques, however, with a greater emphasis on Topic 1 (Number and algebra), Topic 3 (Geometry and trigonometry) and Topic 5 (Calculus). Algebraic skills will be tested and developed in this course.
