# Mathematical studies

The IB Mathematical Studies course is a mathematics course geared towards practical applications of mathematical concepts. Most core mathematical concepts such as algebra, trigonometry and probability are covered by the course's syllabus, but an additional emphasis is placed on statistical techniques. The course does not contain the level of depth found in IB Mathematics SL and HL, and is therefore suited for students with a limited pre-existing background in mathematics. Mathematical studies is only available at Standard Level.
