Four textbooks written by Tim Garry and five highly experienced IB maths teachers (Wazir, Frederick, Nakamoto, Lumb & Landmann) provide comprehensive coverage for both of the new IBDP maths courses. Each textbook comes with an e-book that contains a complete digital copy of the text along with additional support material for students and teachers.
If you are interested in Tim Garry visiting your school to work with teachers and/or students, please contact us.
Teacher notesA more precise title for this syllabus content would be linear correlation of bivariate data - or, alternatively, bivariate statistics. It is worth emphasizing the word bivariate since it is critical for students to understand that this topic is all about the relationship (or, more specifically, the 'association') between two different variables.In the previous syllabus, a student...
I have written a Student Guide for the Exploration (v9) which can be viewed on the Exploration Student Guide page. This page has been marked as 'student accessible' so the Exploration Guide can be shared with your students using Student Access on this site. My Exploraton Guide is also available to teachers (see box below) as a 10-page PDF file that contains fillable fields for entering your...

skip to the Problem of the Week list belowTo me, a 'problem' is a question where it is not initially clear how to begin writing a solution. The vast majority of questions that students are asked to answer during a maths course are exercises where they are simply practicing (exercising) a certain skill and/or some type of mathematical knowledge - and it is clear from the start how to set up...

skip down to Analysis & Approaches teaching plan v5Presented in the table below are suggested SL teaching units and HL teaching units for the Analysis & Approaches course. These do not correspond exactly with the five topics into which the syllabus is divided, but it is not recommended that a teacher use the structure of the syllabus as a plan for teaching (in fact, you should be discouraged)....
It is very important to design some lessons at the start of the first year to gather information and insights as to whether the students arriving in your class(es) are sufficiently prepared so that they have a reasonable chance of being successful in the course. This is especially important for students intending to take the Analysis & Approaches course at HL level.I think it's good for the...
review examsIn my opinion, one of the important objectives of any set of review questions should be giving students the experience of answering a wide variety of questions - variety in both syllabus material covered and level of difficulty. During the course, most of the assessments that students will be completing will come in the form of unit tests which are designed to only assess students knowledge...

1. Number & AlgebraHi Tim I am wondering why there is no quiz on binomial theorem with rational index.

Managing the ExplorationTal como lo describes Rodrigo. Se asigna un nivel de logro para cada criterio y luego se suman.

Mock ExamsHi Anjan, IB exams were also not conducted at my school so I have not yet seen the exams. You will need to ask your IB coordinator to obtain the exams for you. cheers, Tim

Managing the ExplorationCómo se evalúa la exploración? Se utilizan directamente la rúbrica y se dan los puntos según los criterios? Por ejemplo: Criterio A 3p? y así sumamos todos los puntos en cada criterio?

Exploration (IA) IdeasHi Sai, The only IA criterion which has different descriptors for SL and HL is criterion E: use of mathematics. The HL descriptor for criterion E states that the mathematics should "demonstrate sophistication and rigour." So, one way to help...
