Math SL is the median level math in IB Program. It is a cross between Pre-Calculus and Calculus AB.  It is a two year course divided into Math SL I and Math SL II.  At the end of the two year course there is a final exam. The exam plus your portfolios combine to give you a final score.
 
Math SL I -  This course is designed to meet the syllabus requirements for the IB Math Methods SL 1 or as pre-calculus for those students not intending to take the IB exam. It is the beginning of a demanding two year study of advanced mathematical topics including functions, exponents and logarithms, trigonometry, vectors, sequences and series, limits, probability and statistics. IB portfolio projects are a required part of the course. Graphing calculators are required for the course with the TI-83, 83+ strongly recommended. Students taking this course should have above average math skills.
 
Math SL II - This course is designed to complete the syllabus requirements for the IB Standard Level mathematics. Techniques and applications of differential and integral calculus will be studied and a review of topics covered in pre-calculus will be included. IB portfolio projects are a required part of the course. Graphing calculators are required with the TI-83,83+ strongly recommended. This is a demanding course and should be taken by students who have an interest in mathematics and a strong background in mathematical techniques.
