International Baccalaureate Math (Standard Level) – Year One

The International Baccalaureate describes this as a two-year course that caters for students who already possess knowledge of basic mathematical concepts, and who are equipped with the skills needed to apply simple mathematical techniques correctly. The majority of these students will expect to need a sound mathematical background as they prepare for future studies in subjects such as chemistry, economics, psychology and business administration.

The first year of IB Math SL includes a review of all topics necessary to prepare for studying Calculus as well as some additional mathematical topics which will be useful at the college level. In addition to Algebra 2 review topics such as algebraic functions, transformations, exponents, logarithms, and trigonometry, the topics of sequences, probability, unit circle and radian measure, trigonometric equations and identities, vectors, and descriptive statistics will be studied.

Prerequisite: Algebra 2

IB Math (SL) Instructor: Aileen Logan-Tyson
