# Mathematics

The IB Mathematics SL and HL courses follow the same core curriculum, but HL students will study each of these in greater depth. Additionally, once the core curriculum is finished, HL students will cover one of four optional topics to conclude the syllabus.

The Standard Level course covers most fundamental mathematical concepts within algebra, trigonometry and calculus, and focuses on methods and explanations that are straightforward and easily understood. The Higher Level course, meanwhile, provides a deeper, proof-based understanding of mathematics, and also involves more advanced concepts such as differential equations, induction proofs and complex numbers.
