International Baccalaureate Math (Standard Level) – Year Two
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 second year of IB Math SL includes the three topics of a traditional course in Calculus as well as the completion of statistics topics. The former category includes limits, derivatives, and integration along with their applications. For the latter category the topics include cumulative frequency graphs, variance and standard deviation, statistical distributions of discrete random variables, and statistical distributions of continuous random variables.
