All boys continue to study mathematics as part of the IB Diploma, choosing one of the three principal maths courses.
Higher Level is a rigorous, stimulating and challenging problem-solving course, which is designed to meet the needs of those who intend to pursue careers in the sciences, mathematics, economics, computation, engineering and technology.
Mathematics Standard Level is also a demanding course and is suitable for those wanting maths as a support subject. Mathematical Studies Standard Level is intended for those without a preference for mathematics along with those whose future plans do not specifically require knowledge of areas of maths.
For the most able mathematicians there is a supplementary Further Mathematics Higher Level course, which must be taken in addition to Mathematics Higher Level. The Further Mathematics course is aimed at those with firm plans to study maths in the future, as well as those with inclinations towards natural sciences, physics or engineering at the very top universities. The course is an extension of Mathematics Higher Level, with modules in geometry, series and differential equations, linear algebra, discrete maths and set/group theory. The demands of the course are high and much of the syllabus overlaps with the early part of a university degree course.
