Students studying either SL or HL would use two books:
'Core Topics' and 'Analysis and Approaches' or 'Core Topics' and 'Applications and Interpretation
This book has been written for the IB Diploma Programme course Mathematics: Analysis and Approaches HL, for first assessment in May 2021.
This book is designed to complete the course in conjunction with the Mathematics: Core Topics HL textbook. It is expected that students will start using this book approximately 6-7 months into the two-year course, upon the completion of the Mathematics: Core Topics HL textbook.
We are choosing to write this way so that:
- The courses can be thoroughly covered while keeping the books reasonably sized.
- All students in SL (an analogous in HL) can start together and potentially delay making a final choice of course.
- The Core Topics HL book can have less easy questions and significantly tougher questions.
