Mathematical Studies Standard level for the IB Diploma. The ebook is on PDF format and allows you to annotate and highlight on it. Written by Caroline Meyrick and Kwame Dwamena. Strong focus on cover the new IB Diploma Mathematical Studies syllabus.
The significance of mathematics for modelling and practical applications is a prominent theme throughout this coursebook, supported with Theory of Knowledge, internationalism and application links to encourage an appreciation of broader contexts of mathematics. Mathematical modelling is also a key feature.GDC tips are integrated throughout, with dedicated gdc chapter for those needing more support. Exam hints and IB exam-style questions are provided within each chapter; sample exam papers (online) can be tackled in exam-style conditions for further exam preparation. Guidance and support for the internal assessment is also available, providing advice on good practice when writing the project.
-A GDC-dedicated chapter covers the step-by-step processes for using the Texas and Casio calculators in the place of traditional mathematical methods.
-Chapter openers explain why the topic matters in the real world.
-The narrative is broken up into short, manageable-sized chunks and is written in plain English, making the key concepts clear and easy to understand.
-Progressive and repetitive exercises use a combination of routine ‘drill’ questions and application-related questions; they are written in the style of the IB’s short-answer and longer-answer questions.
-There are numerous worked examples that include methods using GDC.
-There are feature boxes for the following aspects of the syllabus: Theory of Knowledge, Internationalism, and Applications, as well as general hints with a special note when the hint is exam-specific.
-Key point panels highlight key things or formulas to remember.
-Exam and Exam-style questions provide lots of exam practice.
