GROUP 5 - MATHEMATICS SL

Standard Level

This course is designed for competent mathematics students who anticipate a need for a sound mathematical background in preparation for their future studies in, for example, chemistry, economics, geography, psychology and business administration. This course covers It is a demanding course covering a broad range of mathematical topics.

The course consists of number and algebra: sequences and series, indices and logarithms and the binomial theorem; functions and equations: the concept of a function, transformations of graphs and polynomial, exponential and logarithmic functions; circular functions and trigonometry: identities, graphs and their transformations and the solution of triangles; vector geometry: position vectors, projections, scalar products and lines in planes; statistics and probability; calculus: limits, rules of differentiation, applications of differential calculus, antidifferentiation and areas under curves. One optional topic is studied and is selected from statistical methods, further calculus and further geometry.
