International Baccalaureate Math (Higher Level) – Year Two

The International Baccalaureate describes this as a two-year course that caters for students with a good background in mathematics who are competent in a range of analytical and technical skills. The majority of these students will be expecting to include mathematics as a major component of their university studies, either as a subject in its own right or within courses such as physics, engineering and technology. Others may take this subject because they have a strong interest in mathematics and enjoy meeting its challenges and engaging with its problems.

The second year of IB Math HL includes the three topics of a traditional course in Calculus as well as one Optional Topic chosen from the IB syllabus. The former category includes limits, derivatives, and integration along with their applications. For the latter category comprises further work with sequences and series, including Taylor and MacLaurin series along with first order differential equations.
