This course is the second year in a two-year sequence in the IB Higher-Level Mathematics component of the IB Diploma Program. The curriculum is outlined in detail in the publication Mathematics HL—First examinations 2006 (to be handed out in class). We outline a few important aspects of this curriculum below.
There are two graded portfolios: one is based on a mathematical investigation and the second is based on mathematical modelling. The mathematical modeling portfolio will be assigned during the junior year and the mathematical investigation portfolio will be assigned during the senior year.
The examinations are to be in three parts, organized as follows.
Paper 1 (2 hours) consists of 20 compulsory short-response questions based on the compulsory core of the syllabus.
