Dear Parents and Students,

Please find below the details of the syllabus of Mathematics SL for Term 2 examination of 2018-2019.

Syllabus (according to Mathematics SL guide):
Topic 1 – Algebra
Topic 2 – Functions and Equations
Topic 5 – Statistics
Topic 6 – Calculus (excluding Trigonometric functions)

There will be two papers for Mathematics SL. Please check the following details of each component:

Paper 1 (90 Marks – 50% weightage – 90 minutes)
Students are not permitted access to any calculator.
Questions will mainly involve analytic approaches to solutions, rather than requiring the use of a GDC.
The paper is not intended to require complicated calculations, with the potential for careless errors. However, questions will include some arithmetic manipulations when they are essential to the development of the question.

Section A Compulsory short-response questions based on the syllabus mentioned above.

Section B Compulsory extended-response questions based on the syllabus mentioned above.

Paper 2 (90 Marks – 50% weightage – 90 minutes)
Students will have access to a GDC at all times. However, not all questions will necessarily require the use of GDC.

Section A Compulsory short-response questions based on the syllabus mentioned above.

Section B Compulsory extended-response questions based on the syllabus mentioned above.

Important Note:
Each student will be given a clean copy of the formula booklet during the examination.
Marks may be awarded for method, accuracy, answers, and reasoning, including interpretation.
Where an answer is incorrect, some marks may be given for correct method, provided this is shown by written working. All students are therefore advised to show their working.

Please feel free to communicate your queries if any.

Thanks and Regards,
