Course outline
–
Use the following table to organize the topics to be taught in the course. If you need to include topics that cover other requirements you have to teach (for
example, national syllabus), make sure that you do so in an integrated way, but also differentiate them using italics. Add as many rows as you need.
–
This document should not be a day-by-day accounting of each unit. It is an outline showing how you will distribute the topics and the time to ensure that
students are prepared to comply with the requirements of the subject.
–
This outline should show how you will develop the teaching of the subject. It should reflect the individual nature of the course in your classroom and should
not just be a “copy and paste” from the subject guide.
–
If you will teach both higher and standard level, make sure that this is clearly identified in your outline.

IB internal assessment requirement to be completed during the course
Briefly explain how and when you will work on it. Include the date when you will first introduce the internal assessment requirement to your students, the different stages and
when the internal assessment requirement will be due.
The internal assessment (IA) will involve investigations and problem solving assignments. Students will be assessed on their ability to read, interpret and solve a given problem using appropriate
mathematical terms, organize and present information and data in tabular, graphical and/or diagrammatic forms, using appropriate notation and terminology, formulate a mathematical argument and
communicate it clearly, select and use appropriate mathematical strategies and techniques, demonstrate an understanding of both the significance and the reasonableness of results, recognize patterns and
structures, make generalizations, recognize and demonstrate an understanding of the practical applications of mathematics, use appropriate technological devices as mathematical tools and demonstrate an
understanding of and the appropriate use of mathematical modeling. The topic will be introduced and students will begin working on the IA when Calculus is introduced. The IA will be due at the
beginning of the second semester of the second year.
3.
Links to TOK
You are expected to explore links between the topics of your subject and TOK. As an example of how you would do this, choose one topic from your course outline that
would allow your students to make links with TOK. Describe how you would plan the lesson.
Topic
Link with TOK (including description of lesson plan)
1.1 Arithmetic sequences and Students in pairs would be challenged to find the sum of the first 100 integers without the use of a calculator. After they work on the task for a few minutes I’ll let them
series: Sum of a finite
know that an 8 year old was able to find the sum in his head. After pairs arrive at their conclusions we will discuss their methods and any patterns they observed. Students
series using sigma notation will be prompted to find an equation that describes their pattern or process and verify that it works for any number of integers. We will then discuss the idea of mathematical
intuition and the basis for formal proof.
4.
International mindedness
Every IB course should contribute to the development of international mindedness in students. As an example of how you would do this, choose one topic from your outline
that would allow your students to analyze it from different cultural perspectives. Briefly explain the reason for your choice and what resources you will use to achieve this goal.
Topic
3.1 Circular functions and
trigonometry
Contribution to the development of international mindedness (including resources you will use)
Students will investigate the origins of the metric system and countries willingness to adopt the metric system for their units of measure for distance, weight and capacity.
Students will then investigate the answer the question. Why haven’t circular functions been converted to the metric system? Students will research the Babylonian origins of
the 360 degree circle and its influences on the world.
5.
Development of the IB learner profile
Through the course it is also expected that students will develop the attributes of the IB learner profile. As an example of how you would do this, choose one topic from
your course outline and explain how the contents and related skills would pursue the development of any attribute(s) of the IB learner profile that you will identify.
Topic
Random sampling from
populations; graphical displays
of data
6.
Contribution to the development of the attribute(s) of the IB learner profile
Contribution to the development of the attribute(s) of the IB learner profile: Inquiry, risk-taking, reflection.
Sampling from populations and then displaying the results requires a fundamental knowledge of the tools necessary to achieve accurate results. Clear presentation is also
necessary. The impact of displaying accurate versus inaccurate results on public opinion and elections throughout the world will be discussed. Suggestions for presenting
and displaying clear and meaningful results will be debated.
Resources
Describe the resources that you and your student will have to support the subject. Indicate whether they are sufficient in terms of quality, quantity and variety. Briefly
describe what plans are in place if changes are needed.
Students and the teacher will utilize various resources such as Safari Montage, Ti-84 Plus GDC’s,
Promethean Board and Active expressions; All-in-Learning Student response remotes and data analysis, Fathom software, Calculus in motion Sketchpad to visually display
concepts. Test generator software, USA Test prep where applicable, Text book TBD
