IB Math is divided into 4 levels with SL and HL.
- Mathematical Studies SL: Focus on connected background subjects and learner’s understanding of basic concepts, reasoning
- Mathematics SL: Focus on introducing key concepts through the development of simple computational skills that can be applied to practical issues.
- Mathematics HL: Focus on developing advanced concepts, exploring the forms and structures of mathematics, solving practical problems and understanding the connections between various topics.
- Further Mathematics HL: Focus on other aspects of mathematics, developing overall awareness for all concepts and subject areas.
IB Math’s difficulty depends on the student’s choice. If students choose SL, the knowledge is not too difficult and the development of relevant skills needed for the course is quite easy. Here are some ways to know how to study IB Math SL?
