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.

Coming from a CBSE background switching to IB was big deal and i was quite scared about this shift. The coursleap program however helped me understand what exactly the IB program was going to be like what are the best strategies to tackle any problem that might come along the way. The course also gave me a headstart for IB and bridged the gap between CBSE and IB. It also showed me that we must learn to forget that there is only 1 standard way but realize that a question can be solved in multiple ways.

A very good course taken by very competent teachers and helpers. It was fun and enjoyable as well as extremely helpful when it came to mathematical understanding and thinking.
My name is Aaryaman Rathi and I will be studying at Uwc Pune in the 11th grade. I had taken the courseleap Pre Ib course which I recommend if you are doing Ib and are from and icse background. Every concept was clearly explained and a lot of hard work was put into every module. I really enjoyed the course.
The course was quite long and extensive, but also very effective. The daily revision work helped make it easier to absorb information focus in class. The engagement exercises done in class helped me warm up and be ready for the course every day. I also enjoyed the breakout rooms, as they helped us interact and complete work with the others.
I think this was an extensive course which has really helped me to transition from ICSE to IB and it has changed the way I think , helped me think critically and logically . All the tutors were very supportive and helpful and I think that miss yogesh was very patient with us and her love for math really showed which kept us encouraged. I would definitely recommend this course as it is a great way to get a head’s up, learn to concepts and make some new friends . Thank you
the course was a really good headstart for us to see what IB math was like and finish and learn extensively 70% of the IB portion .miss Dhingra has lots of knowldge and experience . she would teach to the detail and make sure everyone would understands everything . very interactive and used many different softwares to help us vissually learn . this was a very helpful course and it will really help me do well in IB HL maths . Amanveer was very helpful too .
The course was an amazing opportunity to bridge the jump in the level of math from IGCSE to IB AA HL maths i feel this course hands strengthened my foundation a lot and will hep me in the near future for sure if not later on. The course was strict with deadlines and other activities which at first i felt was unnecessary but as i progressed i realised its importance and how the course is designed such that they knowledge stays with us at the least till we start our ib programmes in our respective schools. Otherwise it has been an amazing experience it takes a lot of time but it is definitely worth the time and money. Lastly I have made some new friends and had some amazing moments of laughter i shall surely remember. Thank you for an amazing time to the main instructor miss Dhingra and the teaching assistants too!
This was a wonderful course, it helped me understand the importance of collaborative working, and also helped me get a heads-up for as to what IB holds for me in the future. Learnt a lot of new concepts which are going to be extremely helpful in the future.
I enjoyed the course alot.
It helped me learn several new concepts a aspects of mathematics
It helped me work with others in a team and also taught me that hard work pays off
I really enjoyed it
The course was very engaging and intense which helped me get a better understanding of each topic that we would encounter in DP. Overall I think the course was well-paced and easy to follow.
It was extremely helpful and the teachers were amazing. I am so glad I signed up:)
This course was extremely informative and beneficial and has equipped us with. enough t=knowlefdge to confidently enter the IB. The teachers were extremely approachable and supportive!
I really liked this course as it was highly informative and taught me a lot of new stuff it also made me realise the difference in IB to my previous board .
It was a very fun and interesting course. I learned a lot of new things and was able to revise my concepts. I really recommend this course for someone who would be starting their diploma program.
Good website overall! I would recommend more information about the curriculum and maybe a weekly structure so that students looking to register for the course would be fully aware of what it is exactly that they will be learning. Apart from that, the descriptions of the programme and knowledge extended about what is required to be a successful IB math student was spot on.
I am confident that this course will definitely help me in the future. Moreover, I learnt many new concepts of IB Math HL AA throughout the course and I really enjoyed my time.
My name’s Aditi Ladda and I will be starting IB with Aditya Birla World Academy this summer, 2021. When I started the course, it seemed very rigorous to do 4 hours of math per day, however it got much easier with time, and I actually started to look forward to classes, and then solving the homework and tutorials, since I know that it is gonna pay off, what with the quantity and quality of the work we’ve done! Not only is it a very knowledgeable course, but also extremely engaging and interesting; I’d definitely recommend this to any student who is going to pursue IB.
The course was very engaging, fun and very well structured. Despite being a long 3 week course, Ms. Dhingra managed to keep the course from being monotonous by using various teaching strategies, giving daily quizzes and engagements. I am now definitely more aware of the concepts that are going to be taught in the IB. I now know various solving strategies, working with the GDC and the in-depth understanding that IB requires. Ms. Dhingra’s passion for the subject shows while she teaches, which encourages the students to understand the nitty-gritties of the topics. Moreover, the bridge program to the course was really helpful for me since I come from a CBSE board, which is a giant leap from IB.

I enjoyed this course. I learnt many new math concepts, formulae and made new friends, all whilst having fun. Although I thought it was a really intensive course, I am happy I took part in it and absorbed something new. The teachers were friendly, helpful and understanding. I was quite surprised at how thoroughly the whole program was planned out, and how deep they went into every topic. If you’re looking for some math preparation as well as practice before your IB schooling starts, this course will definitely help you out.
