IB Mathematics: Applications and Interpretation

  • Course level: Mathematics
  • Categories IB


The aim of the IB Mathematics: Applications and Interpretation course, is to develop an understanding of the concepts, principles and nature of mathematics in order to communicate mathematics clearly and confidently, thus developing logical and creative thinking, and problem solving capabilities. Furthermore, the course will develop a consciousness of how developments in technology and mathematics influence each other.

1:1 and Group Classes

We teach a hybrid model of solo and regular timetabled group classes (currently online). We assess the individual needs of every student and, partnering with parents, mutually decide on an appropriate course of study for the student. Our general recommendation is that students start their learning in a group class and once core theory has been understood, group sessions can be complemented with solo classes to consolidate learning and address any specific concerns.
