Quote of the day
Many who have had an opportunity of knowing any more about mathematics confuse it with arithmetic, and consider it an arid science. In reality, however, it is a science which requires a great amount of imagination.
(Sofia Kovalevskaya, 18501891)

Yes Tim, Thank you for your resources! They are a great help in our teaching! Thank you for being a blessing in providing the materials for our use! Cheers!

Benson, I've uploaded a PDF version of the Integration by Substitution tutorial at the very bottom of this page. Let me know if you feel it's helpful for your students.

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).

Is there a mock exam for mathematical studies?

Hi Tim, some of the mathematical notation in this tutorial isn't displaying properly  do you have a downloadable PDF version?

Shalini, Sorry it's not possible to write a suitable mock exam for each of the HL option topics. With the HL option topics being removed from the new courses that we start teaching in 7 months, it made it less of a priority. I will have mock...

Hi Tim, Is it possible to have sample mock exams for options as well?

Andrew, Thanks very much for bringing that to my attention. I've now fixed that link. Glad you like the P.ot.D.s

Hi Tim. HL # 12 links to #24. Thanks for these!

Omolade, Thanks for your comment on Q.4  the 'discriminating HL question' above. I believe you meant to write 4(c) rather than 4(b). For 4(c), a=5, b=0 would be solutions except that the domain of f is x>=2 which means that ax+b>=2. For a=5,...

For question 4b of '4 questions' on this page, you can also get a = 5 and b = 0.

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...
