IB MATHEMATICS: APPLICATIONS AND INTERPRETATIONS (AI) SL
Credit: 1 unit
PREREQUISITE: AS Algebra II or Algebra II/Teacher approval/Offered to those students pursuing the IB Diploma.
NOTE: The IB DP Mathematics Applications and Interpretation course recognizes the increasing role that mathematics and
technology play in a diverse range of fields in a data-rich work emphasizes the meaning for mathematics in context by focusing
on topics that are often used as application or in mathematical modeling. All external assessments involve the use of
technology. The internally assessed exploration allows students to develop independence in mathematical learning.
Students will study right triangle trigonometry, sinusoidal models, regression analysis, Chi Square test, t-test, normal distribution,
normal curve, derivatives, anti-derivatives, and area enclosed by a curve. Daily homework will be assigned with the extensive
usage of graphing calculations. Projects are required.
The course is weighted with 1.0 for students who complete the one-year program and sit for the IB exam; otherwise, weight will
be set at 0.666. Refer to the Advanced Studies section for IB distinctions, grading, testing and exam fee requirements.
