    Mock Exams
    Azeb, Thanks for your question. This site is for IB Maths HL & SL, not for Math Studies. InThinking has a separate site for Math Studies. You will have to check on that site to see if they have mock exam(s).

    quadratic functions & eqns
    Nicola, Thank you for pointing out these errors. The error for 4(c) was pretty obvious given that only need to add 13/2 to both sides, then multiply both sides by 2, then take square root to get the correct zeros of -3+-sqrt(13). The error...
