Pre-Diploma SL and HL (MYP 5 Plus) second edition is an attempt to cover, in one volume, the Presumed Knowledge required for the IB Diploma courses ‘Mathematics SL’ and ‘Mathematics HL’. This book may also be used as a general textbook at about 10 Grade level in classes where students complete a rigorous course in preparation for the study of mathematics at a high level in their final two years of high school.
Feedback from teachers using the first edition suggested that while it provided satisfactory preparation for prospective Mathematics SL students, several sections needed to be more rigorous to prepare students thoroughly for Mathematics HL. The first edition has been revised throughout and the highlighted topics in the table of contents show at a glance the main areas that have been substantially revised and extended.
In terms of the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), this book does not pretend to be a definitive course. In response to requests from teachers who use ‘Mathematics for the International Student’ at IB Diploma level, we have endeavoured to interpret their requirements, as expressed to us, for a book that will prepare students for Mathematics SL and Mathematics HL. We have developed this book independently of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in consultation with experienced teachers of IB Mathematics. The text is not endorsed by the IBO.
It is not our intention that each chapter be worked through in full. Teachers must select carefully, according to the abilities and prior knowledge of their students, to make the most efficient use of time and give as thorough coverage of content as possible.
