IB DP Mathematics AA HL Flashcards

Maths in IBDP is required at either standard level or higher level. You can take two courses: Analysis & Approaches (AA) or Applications & Interpretations (AI). Each course covers the same 5 topics (Number & Algebra, Functions, Geometry & Trig, Statistics, and Calculus), with different focus and weightage. Higher level courses in both AI and AA cover content in-depth, and also harder topics.

Whereas Math AI focuses more on the practical applications of math, with emphasis on functions and statistics, Math AA is a more traditional course, with more emphasis on number & algebra, geometry & trig, and calculus. As for the actual content, you can refer to the subject guides for each course.
