G11_Mathematical_Studies_SL (Syllabus – second term exam)

Dear Parents and Students,
Please find below the details of the syllabus of Mathematical Studies SL for the 2nd term examination 2018-2019.

Syllabus for examination :
(1) Number & Algebra 1-2
(2) Descriptive Statistics
(3) Geometry & Trigonometry 1-2
(4) Sets and probability
(5) Logic

There will be two papers for Mathematical Studies SL for the mock examination:
Paper 1:
Total Marks- 90
Duration- 1 hour 30 minutes
15 compulsory short-response questions based on the topics mentioned above.
Weight-age- 50%

• Knowledge of all topics is required for this paper. However, not all topics are necessarily assessed in every examination session.
• The intention of this paper is to test students’ knowledge and understanding across the breadth of the syllabus. However, it should not be assumed that the separate topics are given equal emphasis.
Question type:
• Questions may be presented in the form of words, symbols, diagrams or tables, or combinations of these.
• Questions of varying levels of difficulty are set.
• One or more steps may be needed to answer each question.

Paper 2:
Total Marks- 90
Duration- 1 hour 30 minutes
6 compulsory extended-response questions based on the topics mentioned above.
Weight-age- 50%

Questions in this section will vary in terms of length and level of difficulty.
Individual questions will not be worth the same number of marks. The marks allocated are indicated at the start of each question.
Syllabus coverage
• Knowledge of all topics is required for this paper. However, not all topics are necessarily assessed in every examination session.
• The intention of this paper is to test students’ knowledge and understanding of the syllabus in depth. The range of syllabus topics tested in this paper may be narrower than that tested in paper 1.

Total marks = 50% Paper 1 + 50% Paper 2 = Final score

Question type:
• Questions require extended responses involving sustained reasoning.
• Individual questions may require knowledge of more than one topic.
• Questions may be presented in the form of words, symbols, diagrams or tables, or combinations of these.
• Normally, each question reflects an incline of difficulty, from relatively easy tasks at the start of a question to relatively difficult tasks at the end of a question. The emphasis is on problem-solving.
Important Note:

Calculators:
1) For both examination papers, students will have access to a GDC at all times.

Mathematical studies SL formula booklet:
1) Each student will have access to a clean copy of the formula booklet during the examination.

Awarding of marks:
1) In addition to correct answers, marks are awarded for method, accuracy and reasoning.
2) In paper 1, full marks are awarded for each correct answer irrespective of the presence or absence of working.
Where an answer is incorrect, marks are given for the correct method. All students should, therefore, be advised to show their working.
3) In paper 2, full marks are not necessarily awarded for a correct answer without working. Answers must be supported by working and/or explanations. Where an answer is incorrect, marks are given for the correct method.
All students should, therefore, be advised to show their working.
Feel free to communicate your queries.
Thanks and Regards,

Utsav Oza.
Math Studies SL educator.
