With unrivalled guidance straight from the IB, over 700 pages of practice and the most comprehensive and correct syllabus coverage, this course book will set your learners up to excel. The only resource developed directly with the IB, it fully captures the IB ethos, connecting mathematical applications with relevant, real examples. You can download the Worked Solutions Oxford IB Mathematics Standard Level Course Book at the end of the article.
Mathematics SL is primarily intended for students who “expect to need a sound mathematical background as they prepare for future studies in subjects such as chemistry, economics and business,” and its curriculum is a proper subset of the Mathematics HL curriculum.
Topics from the following areas form the common “Core curriculum” for both courses: Algebra, Functions and equations, Circular functions and trigonometry, Vectors, Statistics and probability, Calculus. In Mathematics SL, students are provided a minimum of 140 instructional hours on the topics from the Core.
