Mathematics Applications and Interpretation SL is a course designed for students who wish to gain a good knowledge of mathematics, but with an emphasis on the applied nature of the subject. They may have found more traditional mathematics courses a challenge and it will appeal to students who enjoy the practical application of mathematics to real life situations. This course is suitable for students who may go on to further study in subjects that utilise mathematics in this way such as biology, the human sciences and business.

Course Structure

The five areas below are covered during the SL course. There is a core set of topics for each area. In addition some of these core topics are considered in more depth and there are also a series of extra topics.

In addition to this the course contains investigative and inquiry-based learning, supporting the students in their internally assessed exploration task.

There is some content that is common with Mathematics SL Analysis and Approaches course but the Mathematics Applications and Interpretation SL has a stronger emphasis on modelling and on using probability and statistics in practical scenarios.
