IB Math and Math for Independent Curriculum

Mathematics Higher Level (HL) is a two-year course offered by the International Baccalaureate (IB) and is one of the Group 5 (Mathematics and Computer Science) courses for the IB Diploma Programme. The Standard Level (SL) mathematics courses are Mathematical Studies SL, Mathematics SL, and Further Mathematics SL. The curriculum for Mathematics SL is a subset of the curriculum for Mathematics HL. The curriculum for Further Mathematics SL is composed of all four of the optional topics from Mathematics HL, plus an additional Geometry topic.

In Mathematics HL, a student is required to perform an in-depth study of the Core curriculum topics of algebra, functions and equations, circular functions and trigonometry, matrices, vectors, statistics and probability, and calculus. In addition, there are four optional topics of study (“Options”), one of which must be selected by the school. These four Options are listed below.

• further statistics and probability

• sets, relations, and groups

• series and differential equations

• discrete mathematics
