    Math HL or SL?

    Hey everyone, I've got a pretty big decision to make within the next few weeks regarding which level of IB Mathematics to take. I only have the options of SL or HL - no further maths or studies is offered at my school - and the decision I make is final; If I go into HL and find it too difficult or take SL and find it too easy I cannot switch to the other. If I were to take SL, I would have 3 more semesters of math in high school and end math at the end of 11th grade; taking HL, I would have 4 more semesters and end at November 2012. Grades aren't that major of a concern for me - on our transcripts for universities, our marks are standardized (for HL , they are routinely standardized about 35%), and as I am a certificate student, I'm not concerned about diploma points whatsoever. A couple other things that might affect my descision are both that I'd consider myself to be a talented math student - I learn rather quickly and am able to work intuitively (I found I was able to complete the majority of the Shadow Functions IA with but a basic knowledge of cubics and no knowledge of how to solve them in under an hour; of course, this is excluding the writing up of the report, which makes up the majority of the time investment into the IA afaik), and that the HL mathematics teacher at our school is by far the best teacher in the school, whereas it would be a crapshoot as to which SL math teacher I would get. However, HL exam questions I find rather intimidating, and I fear that I would not be able to perform up to my standards in tests for the subject. Thanks a lot for any help, Rahul
  2. Do you know of any online IB summer courses, free or paid, and if so are they effective or just a waste? thanks.
  3. Hi everyone, Just wanted to ask what book do you think is best to practice Math SL from? Thanks
  4. Hello fellow IB Students, I need help with my EE in math sl.tp I have decided to do my EE in math sl based on probability, but I can't seem to find a suitable reserch question or an idea to get me started. I was thinking about choosing something that involves poker or a card game. Lately I have been looking a bit moreinto the Monty Hall problem and I found it intersting but I don't know if it is suitable for an EE. Any help at all would be appreciated, suggestions, sites to read about probability problems or even some video clips to watch. I apologize if my Enlgish is a bit sloppy, it is 2am and I am exhausted. -André
  5. I'm planning to enroll in UK/Australia for BUSINESS MANAGEMENT&MARKETING course in the future at around 2014. I'm currently an IB student. I am an all-rounder but with an exception in Maths, even though I can manage it, but still it just get on my nerves. I took IGCSE in Maths Extended n got an A* (after having hundreds of exercises n efforts) but still I'm confused and not confident to take Math SL. Actually I want to take Math Studies because it would be easier on my part. However, I'm afraid that if I take Math Studies (and I am on search for good universities in UK and will be looking forward to apply in international undergraduate scholarship) the universities will look down upon me because they see the word 'Math Studies'. Somehow, I predicted that I can get a 7 in Math Studies. But with Math SL, it can varied from 5 to 7 (a 7 will mean a very rigorous effort but still 70% achievable). Therefore it really confused me, I want to get a very high score in IB and that is more easily achievable if I'm taking Math Studies. But I also need to get into UK universities for business management &marketing course (searching a cut-off/scholarship as well) and I'm afraid they will mark me down if they look at my Math Studies. I wonder whether they really know and care about math studies and math sl difference??? My current subject choices are: HL Business Economics English b SL Biology Bahasa Indonesia Literature Maths (Studies/Sl????? *currently on Sl but I'm kinda nervous with it) PLEASE HELP ME give your suggestions! Thanks a lot!
  6. Okay so here is the problem: (ax2+ b/x )8= 256x16+4096x13+...+kx+... a. Find a (which I found to be 2) b. Find b (which I found to be 4) c. Find k As you can already tell, I don't know how to find k AT ALL! Lol please help me, I have a test tomorrow. Thank you!
  7. So how was it? I found it to be easier than P1. I blanked out on that Section B question with the triangle intersecting with the circle. I knew how to solve it but kept getting weird angle values. 0_0 So I just at least wrote down the formula for method marks.
  8. hey, i just wanted to know what you guys thought of the exam for people in TZ1, i know we cannot discuss about paper 2, but i found paper 1 rather easy, there was some confusion about number 10, but i got t=5pi/6
