A New Resource for students
I am excited to be able to tell you about this new resource I have been developing for students. It came from a genuine desire to be able to give my own students a really useful support resource as they are doing homework and preparing for exams. The aim is that students everywhere can use this resource to help them review and understand the key concepts from the IB Mathematical Studies course. they can do so at their own pace and become stronger independent learners. The feedback I have had from my own students so far ahs been excellent and so I feel like it has been time well spent. Of course it would be wonderful to think that students everywhere could benefit. Hoping to see lots of your students there soon.
It is important to be clear that there are still some gaps on the site and things that need to be completed. IT is for that reason that ccess will be freely available during the time it takes me to fill those gaps. Free access is guaranteed through the May 2017 exam session. Once complete I will be adding layers of new resources.
How to get it
Visit www.studyIB.net/mathstudies now and hit the the red subscribe button....
The resources on this site will be freely available to those who sign up until the end of June 2017 while the site nears completion. We are sure that students everywhere will find it useful and help them to revise and maximise their performance in exams.
The aim is get lots of students using the resource and giving us feedback to help us get better. Students are only required to give an e-mail address that we can use to solicit feedback at a later date.
Teachers and Students
We are keen that both students and teachers are using this resource. Students can use it to support homework or revise. Teachers can use it to help show concepts to students, support them with homework and even set cover lessons. Teachers who are new to the course, might well find it useful to clear up some concepts.
The StudyIB Maths Studies site is a web based learning resource for students, packed with resources to help you to improve your understanding and performance.
The site is written by Jim Noble, a hugely experienced Maths Studies teacher, and it has been designed to support student learning from the beginning of the course until the final exams. It is clearly organised by s yllabus topic, simple, attractive layout, and is optimised for mobile devices.
- The site includes:
- 100+ Teaching videos covering the key concepts on the syllabus.
- 150+ Slides with visual explanations and examples.
- 200+ Onscreen practice questions with feedback.
- 50+ Revision Flashcards.
- 50+ original exam style questions with video solutions.
- Regular updates with more videos and questions going up every month.
Teaching videos allow you to review key concepts you have learned in class.These thoughtful, well-paced, demonstrations and explanations, which you can watch again and again, are designed to make you think and improve your understanding.
Visual slides back up the videos with you can see visual notes that describe and summarise the key ideas.
On-screen quizzes enable you to check your understanding of ideas by giving you instant feedback and advice. Return to them as often as you like.
Revision Flashcards boil the syllabus down to key points which help you to review as exams approach.
Exam Style questions which you can try out on paper yourself and then check your answers against the video solutions.
