About this course
There are two different DP subjects in mathematics, this course: Mathematics: analysis and approaches responds to the need for analytical expertise and a deep understanding of mathematics to drive progress and development in the world today. Students on this course develop the ability to tackle and communicate mathematical concepts with clarity and coherence, whilst maintaining rigour and balance in their study. Both conceptual and real-world examples are explored as students hone their ability to construct, communicate and justify mathematical argument and gain insight into mathematical form and structure. The internally assessed unit allows students to develop independence and over the course students are encouraged to take a considered approach when looking at different mathematical ideas within broad units such as algebra, geometry and calculus. Mathematics: analysis and approaches is stimulating and challenging in equal measure.
Studying this course, students will develop a curiosity and enjoyment of mathematics and appreciate its complexity and power. They will strengthen their logical and creative thinking and refine their understanding of core skills such as reasoning, deduction, abstraction and generalization. More broadly, the course will build their capacity to be persistent in problem solving, use technology well and communicate mathematically with concision and confidence. Interestingly, they will also examine the universality of mathematics and its multicultural, international and historical perspectives. Alongside this, students will explore the contribution of mathematics to other disciplines including those covered as “areas of knowledge” in the Theory of Knowledge course, which exemplifies the cross-curricular and outward facing approach of an IB mathematics education.
The course is made up of both externally assessed examinations and an internally assessed work. King’s InterHigh will support with guidance around where external exams may be sat. These exams are sat at the end of the two year programme.
Learning IB Mathematics online allows students to enjoy the following features:
We have several fee packages and options, with differing levels of commitment to suit most circumstances. In most cases parents have the option to pay in instalments, spreading the cost of the investment.
