Course Concept

Higher Level (HL) And Standard Level (SL)

The Pre-IB Course is an intensive three-week course for students prior to their embarking on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The course helps students from non IB board streams to seamlessly integrate into the IBDP by bridging the gap between different modes of teaching.

The Pre-IB Math course is designed such that students from different curricula upto year are able to 10 value it. It is equally beneficial for students who have previously studied within the IB curriculum or have taken Advanced Mathematics from other boards as the IBDP is a pre – university course that has its own rigour of content, contains significant detail and commands a superior skill set. The course is also designed in a manner that students of MAA (Math Analysis and Approaches) and MAI (Math Applications and Interpretation) can benefit from it.

The programme delivery ensures the best use of IB-compliant practices in content, teaching styles and techniques, ultimately resulting in significantly higher chances of achieving top results at school. The course lays the foundations of prior learning concepts, focusing on the improvement of the academic skills of critical thinking, using real-world applications and simulations, the carrying out of explorations (with collaborative group work) and use of the Graphic Display Calculator. It familiarises students with the work habits required to perform effectively in IB Math. It provides students with a head start in their journey as it imparts essential skills and lays the robust mathematical foundations to succeed in IB.

Testimonials

“The content and application knowledge that Miss Dhingra has is incredible and especially her way of expressing mathematical questions in a concise and effective manner makes it extremely easy for students to grasp the concepts. This course has given me the required rigour I need for IBDP Maths due to its intensifying and daily schedule. Moreover, it has also given me insightful tips for external assessments such as the Maths exploration and I have been introduced to the Math toolkit to a great extent. Finally, this course has given the perfect boost I need for starting with IBDP Maths.”

Ms. Dhingra truly takes time to understand each and every student in the class and pays attention to their strengths and weaknesses and addresses them in class. Even though class is online, she has tried her best to keep us engaged by making the sessions interactive and going in great depth for each topic. I really liked the way Ms Dhingra taught us the concepts in such a way that they have been ingrained in my mind quite well.

Prisha Punjwani

Aditya Birla World Academy, Mumbai, ICSE, 2020

The tutorials were helpful in applying my understanding of problems. The feedback of our instructors was very very helpful, and I do feel more prepared to go back and redo the tutorials. I feel Ms. Dhingra adds value to the course by ensuring solidification of class materials. She helps us ensure that we understand the concepts properly. It has taught me to work on a subject for a long time. This course has also taught me about prioritization. I do feel better about prioritization and more confident.

Mrs Dhingra is the best math teacher I have ever had. I love how into the subject she is and how much of research stuff she tells us to go and find. It makes the course less monotonous and more interesting

Aadya Joshi

American School of Bombay, Mumbai, Math SL Analysis and Approaches, 2019

This course helped improve my thinking abilities and definitely got me better at math, I got a clearer idea of how math as well as IB was going to be overall. It also got me inquisitive of various things which encouraged me to watch videos and do research, I think this time of the vacation was used quite efficiently and I am glad it happened at CourseLeap Mrs. Dhingra is never hesitant when we have doubts and she has a plethora of teaching strategies which adds to my understanding of math. She did go in depth of quite a few interesting topics to broaden our knowledge irrespective of whether it was a part of the course, which is one thing I really liked. She understood my situation with math as I had an IGCSE extended background and made sure I was able to cope with the others
