Welcome to a different kind of math!
IB math studies is a survey course that is designed with two goals in mind. The first goal is to give students a sampling of several math courses that are available after completing algebra 2. The second goal is to help students learn how to learn math in a more independent environment than is traditional in other math courses.
Each semester will consist of several unit assessments and a project (with presentation) that will be the final exam. These projects will be built thoughout the semester, however they are completely student driven. This is an opportunity to really shine and see how mathematics could apply in your frame of reference.
There will be some labs thoughout the first semester, which will allow us to practice skills necessary for the first semester final exam.
For those students that are working towards their IB diploma, the first semester final exam project will serve as your internal assessment and will likely be sent to IB to be graded. Show how awesome you are!
