  • ISBN: 978-1-907374-61-6 | Edition: 2 | Publisher: OSC Publishing
  • Written By: Wendy Stevens
  • This guide addresses the Mathematics HL Option Calculus. The Option is a separate part of the exam and generally it is the last part of the syllabus to be covered, and therefore often the part least revised and yet it is worth 20% of the final marks and should merit special attention.  This dedicated guide will help students focus on it and achieve their best in the examination.

Mathematics Section B: Analysis and Practice of the Long Answer Questions

  • ISBN: 978-1-907374-63-0 | Edition: 2 | Publisher: OSC Publishing
  • Written By: Ian Lucas
  • SL papers 1 and 2 both contain “extended response”, or long answer, questions. Although the syllabus which these questions test is the same as for the short answer questions, the techniques required are very different.

    This guide strips down the questions to their essential components, and shows students how to set about answering them. What do the keywords mean? How does the information in one part help with the answer to a different part? How do you cut through the words to find out exactly what is being asked? There are 32 example questions: some are analysed in detail, helping students build up a “toolbox” of techniques; others are set out as practice questions with comprehensive hints for those who get stuck. All the questions have full sets of answers.

    The book should be seen as a companion guide to the SL Revision Guide. It will be invaluable for those students who are not yet confident answering the extended response questions, or where the student has not had extensive practice.

    This guide is updated for the new syllabus introduced in Sep 2012, for exams beginning May 2014.
