Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A total of 179 questions that are NOT taken from previous exams, that cover all the skills and concepts of the IB (International Baccalaureate) Mathematics SL (Standard Level) course and that range from the basic and direct to the challenging. All the answers are provided and the steps leading to the solution are shown. Comments and tips are also provided. Each question is classified regarding the use of the GDC: necessary, optional or GDC free.
The questions have been written by a teacher with a long IB experience and are designed to help the students prepare for their external exam or to help them review the concepts and skills of each of the guide's topics.
The organisation of the application follows that of the subject guide. It is therefore, advisable to go start with algebra, then move on to functions, then trigonometry and finally end with calculus as the concepts of each of these sections draw on some concepts from the previous sections. The two parts on statistics and probability and matrices and vectors can be attempted independently of the other sections.
A student can also start using the application as he / she starts the course and as soon as a question is answered, a tick can be placed next to it. If a student wants a second attempt, all the ticks can be removed and the questions attempted again.
