IB Math Common Core (SL & HL)

IB Math Common Core

As the new IB Math curriculum has been launched in Sept 2019 for the IB Class of 2021, The Edge now runs a new IB Math Common Core course to help students who are going to the first year of IB get prepared for the upcoming syllabus changes as well as stay ahead of their in-school instruction. Students will learn the common core topics covered under the new IB Math curriculum.

Course Description:

The instructor of the course will cover all the concepts of the common core topics, these apply to both the Approaches and Analysis (AA) and Applications and Interpretations (AI) curricula. This course is also covering both SL and HL for the curricula, as all students will need SL knowledge with additional concepts for the HL students.

The complete course consists of 5 lessons, each being 3 hours in length. The lesson breakdown will be around 2 hours on theory, concepts, and strategies with worked examples. The ideas will cover concepts to deal with both questions with a calculator and without a calculator. The remaining time will be in-class questions on the concepts covered in the lesson. Each lesson will cover a single self-contained unit of the common core.
