IB Math Studies (Standard Level) is designed specifically for out-of-field instructors or teachers new to the IB curriculum. The course caters for students with varied backgrounds and abilities. Following IB guidelines, topics are approached from first principles. Students are encouraged to develop and use their own skills rather than having to rely on standard algorithms and learned formulae. An inquiry-based approach with practical use of investigations has been used to provide meaningful context to topics and develop student understanding. IB’s aim of promoting internationalism through mathematics is achieved with background information being given relative to the history of mathematical discovery, noted mathematicians and the cultural contexts of their contributions.
