new syllabus > new website
new site coming ... The site for the new Analysis & Approaches course (SL & HL) will soon be available to all current and new subscribers. With regard to the new Analysis course, check out my Analysis syllabus content and notes (v7) document below - and the Preparing for HL Paper 3 - Analysis page.
new problems ... For problems being added to the Problem of the Day (P.o.t.D.) sets for both SL and HL, I am striving to compose problems that involve content of the Analysis & Approaches course that is new (in some way) compared to the current Maths HL and Maths SL courses. These problems are designated with an asterisk in front of the filename in the list of problems appearing on the HL Problem of the Day page and the SL Problem of the Day page. These same problem lists will exist on the new site that will soon be launched for the Analysis & Approaches course.
The mathematics courses in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) will be very different starting in August 2019 (first exams in May 2021). The changes are certainly the most substantial since the addition of an internal assessment task to IBDP mathematics nearly 20 years ago.
new InThinking sites for the new IB mathematics courses
Both of the current InThinking math sites, this Math HL-SL site and the Math Studies site, will continue to exist until the last exam for the current syllabus which will occur in November 2020. Starting in June 2019, there will be two new InThinking math sites - one for the new Analysis & Approaches course (HL & SL) and another for the new Applications & Interpretation course (HL & SL). A subscription to the current Math HL-SL site (this site) will also provide access to the new Analysis & Approaches site (and vice versa); and a subscription to the current Math studies site will also provide access to the new Applications & Interpretation site (and vice versa). [Note: The IB often refers to each of the two new courses as 'subjects'. Each has its own Subject Guide]
I will be the editor for the new Analysis & Approaches site. Before the launch of the new site in June 2019, I will begin to offer some advice and information concerning the new Analysis course on this page. For example, see below a 4-page document which lists all of the Analysis syllabus content including detailed notes on changes to the syllabus in comparison to the current syllabuses for Maths HL and Maths SL.
