Pre-IB Math 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 10 are able to 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 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. We acquaint students with Internal Assessment criteria and format of Math Exploration thoroughly and they submit a mini task and get extensive feedback. This is crucial since the IA is worth 20 marks, and is worth 20% of the student’s final grade in IB Mathematics. Overall, 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.
The courses are designed in such a manner which help students of all abilities to succeed in the math program at school.
- We have separate batches for HL & SL Pre-IB Math Courses.
- Students of MAA (Math Analysis and Approaches) and MAI (Math Applications and Interpretation) equally benefit from HL/SL courses.
- Students who are considering Higher Level or who are not fully sure of the choice of level will have extra support material and assistance provided for the success in this course.
IB Diploma Math underwent significant changes in the year 2019. Ms. Dhingra, our Chief Instructor for the Math courses, is a leading IB Math workshop leader in the Asia Pacific Region since 2010. Since 2019 Mrs. Dhingra has conducted math workshops for both the courses: MAA, Math Analysis and Approaches Course and MAI, Math Applications and Interpretation Course nationally and internationally.

While sustained hard work can allow one to succeed regardless of mathematical prowess, students will receive a ‘Level recommendation’ in a progress report given upon course conclusion.
To support students through their entire IB Math journey, Courseleap offers Personalised ‘Tutorial Hours’ and ‘Revision/ Exam Prep Courses’ through the year. Courses are scheduled at times where performance is crucial (e.g. Predicted Grades, Exams). Year round Tutorial Hours are for continued concept building, learning tricky topics, doubts clarification or solving challenging problem sets. Revision/Exam Prep Courses impart top revision strategies, and personalized feedback for solved practice papers.
Yes – regardless of background, students may find IB math challenging due to its application based questioning and focus on critical thinking. Additional math topics are taught in significantly greater detail in the IB and command a superior skill set. We offer separate courses for HL & SL additional math students can take the benefit of signing up for Pre-IB Higher Level Math course
