Course Description:
Students taking the IB Math Studies SL course will follow curriculum outlined by the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. This course is offered for students who intend to pursue university studies, which do not require a great deal of further mathematical study. The key objective of this course is to introduce students to mathematical concepts and principles through the development of various techniques, allowing for the possibilities of the practical and real-world applications of the subject.
Math Studies SL students are expected to analyze problems using the appropriate notation, terminology, techniques, and graphical presentations. An important focus of this course is critical thinking and logic, allowing students to demonstrate their comprehension of both the significance and the reasonableness of their results. Students gain experience formulating mathematical arguments and effectively communicating their justifications through a variety of means, including tables, graphs, and diagrams. The applications of technology are also employed as appropriate mathematical tools for problem-solving, data analysis, and presentation of mathematical investigations and modeling.
To incorporate internationalism into the Math Studies curriculum, this course addresses the regions of the world where discoveries in the mathematical community have been made. In addition to exploring the historical and social context of these discoveries, regional adaptations to different methods and techniques will be investigated.

IB Math Studies Summary
IB Math Studies SL course begins with an introduction to the graphic calculator display (GCD) and a review of student knowledge of numbers and Algebra. Other topics highlighted are functions and equations, analytical geometry and trigonometry, set theory, and probability. Semester II resumes with financial applications of mathematics, sequences, series, and statistics. This semester includes and introduction to differential calculus, and allows for a comprehensive review for external assessment.

Internal Assessment
Assessment
Internal Assessment
Each IB Math Studies SL student will assume responsibility for completion of a project involving the collection, analysis, and evaluation of data. Students can choose from a wide variety of project types such as modeling, investigations, applications, or statistical surveys. Math Studies students use mathematics learned from the curriculum to explore an area of study related to their own individual interests. Student work is assessed internally and submitted to IBO for moderation. Project work should be thorough, and contain evidence of a students knowledge of notation and terminology, ability to communicate mathematical information verbally and graphically, and their ability to appropriately use technology to assist their studies in mathematics.
External Assessment
External assessment will consist of two exam papers given in the spring semester of the course. Paper 1 consists of fifteen short answer questions that test knowledge across the scope of the Math Studies SL syllabus. Paper 2 is comprised of five extended response questions, involving sustained mathematical reasoning with an emphasis on real-life applications. While Paper 1 requires the student to perform a mechanical approach to solve the problems, Paper 2 entails problem-solving strategies.
