# Applications & Interpretation

## International Baccalaureate Mathematics Applications and Interpretation Syllabus Topics, Resources and Exam-Style Questions.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Maths course, is structured into two main pathways: the Analysis and Approaches (AA) and the Applications and Interpretations (AI). The AA pathway is geared towards students with a strong interest in mathematics, and is particularly suited for those planning to pursue degrees in engineering, physical sciences, or other math-intensive fields. This route places an emphasis on algebra, calculus, and analytical geometry. On the other hand, the AI pathway is designed for students who intend to pursue careers that require mathematics for practical applications, such as in social sciences, statistics, or business. This route focuses on statistics, modeling, and applied mathematics. Both pathways offer standard level (SL) and higher level (HL) options to cater to different levels of aptitude and interest among students.

Many students studying Mathematics at the International Baccalaureate Diploma level have a TI-Nspire as their graphic display calculator (GDC) of choice. I have put together 20 essential skills, beyond the basics, that each of these students will need in order to be successful in their final exam. These skills are put together in a 'learn a skill a day' presentation called GCD Essentials.

"Your calculator skill a day would be awesome if written for the TI-84...any chances of that happening? Thank you! I just discovered your website today.

[Transum: Thanks for your comment Michelle. After moving on from the TI-84 to the TInSpire many years ago I have completely forgotten the tips and tricks I’d collected. Sorry but I think the chances are slim!]"

Just search TI-84 and the task you are trying to perform."

"I have very much enjoyed using this platform - I first used it becaI was tutoring a student who was doing IB (year 12) and the syllabus seemed to line up with some of your content perfectly."

"Here is a little bit of fun to lighten the mood when students are in their final phase of revising the syllabus before the final exams. It is a pairs game designed to increase familiarity with some of the important formulae provided in the formulae booklet. Spend ten minutes playing this game before going back to those exam-style and past-paper questions.
