# Group 5: Mathematics (Standard Level)

# MATHEMATICS IB

For the following math courses, please note: Courses with an X at the end of the course designation are the appropriate selections for Immersion students.

# MATHEMATICS – MA10F / MA10FX (Grade 9)

The course description for MA10F / MA10FX can be found in the “core course” description.

Grade 10

IB students take Mathematics 20PBI / 20PBX in the first semester and Mathematics 32IB / 32IBX in the second semester. These are the standard University Entrance courses. In addition, students will be exposed to more problem-solving in preparation for mathematics contests and further IB competitions.

# MATHEMATICS – MA20BP / MA20BPX

This course is intended only for those students who intend to register for Calculus in a post-secondary institution. The content of this course focuses on the more abstract numerical concepts, places an emphasis on higher level problem solving, mental mathematics and cumulative testing. Topics include polynomials and factoring, analytic geometry, trigonometry, exponents and radicals, geometry, rational expressions and equations, functions, statistics and probability, and variation and sequence.

# MATHEMATICS – MA30PB / MA30PBX

Prerequisite MA20PB / MA20PBX. This course is designed for those students requiring Mathematics in post-secondary institutions. A TI-83 Plus graphing calculator is required. Topics include Algebra, Geometry and functions.

# Grade 11

Grade 11 IB students take Mathematics 40IB / 40IBX, the standard University Entrance course, every other day throughout the year. A TI-83 Plus graphing calculator is required.

# MATHEMATICS – MA40IB / MA40IBX

Prerequisite Mathematics 30PB / 30PBX: Topics include polynomial and rational functions, circular functions and trigonometry, exponents and logarithms, progressions, analytic geometry, permutations and combinations. In addition, students will be expected to do some additional IB topics such as small angles and the area of sectors.TI-83 Plus graphing calculator is required.

Grade 12

# MATHEMATICS – MA42IB – (Standard Level)

This course is designed for students who expect to need a sound mathematical background as they prepare for future studies in subjects such as chemistry, economics, math, psychology, business, etc. Topics include: calculus, probability, statistics, vector geometry and matrices. Students will write the IB examinations in May. A required portfolio will be completed during the year. Two midterm examinations will be written; one in the fall and one during the exam week at the end.
