The students’ progress in mathematics is a sequential process and a journey. At BIS, we support students with their mathematics learning journey from the beginning in Early Years through to their senior years in IB Diploma.
Today, we’ve got the chance to talk with our DP mathematics teachers and students. They are going to share with us a little bit about their opinions on DP mathematics.
Both courses cover the same 5 topics within mathematics but with varying emphasis in each area: number and algebra, functions, geometry and trigonometry, statics and probability, and calculus.
A lot of students feel quite challenged with the skills needed for the IA, especially those new to the IB approaches. However, it is an authentic IB experience with an aim to cultivate the mind and to develop the lifelong learners.
Below are some parts of an IA from one of our graduates.
We believe that after their two years of DP journey, students will develop mathematical knowledge, concepts and principles that are useful to them. Furthermore, their mathematical thinking will become a habit that we believe is integral to future study.
