Handwritten notes on the new syllabus for IBDP Maths for 2021 - Applications and Interpretations SL (A&I SL). It is 52 pages - 8 on Algebra, 10 on Functions, 8 on Trig, 17 on Statistics, 9 on Calculus.
Each topic is carefully organised, with the subtopic numbers very clearly marked on each page, related to the exact numbers given in the official syllabus document.
The first topic is available for free here, if you want to give it a preview before buying the whole thing.
I have also finished the A&A SL & HL notes as well.

This resource has handwritten notes for the fifth and final topic of the new Applications and Interpretations SL course (calculus), for first exams in 2021. There will be significant overlap with the A&A Topic 5, and this is a subset of A&I HL Topic 5. I wrote and sold notes for the current IB courses, which have been fairly successful, so I am in the process of writing notes for the new courses, from scratch.

Handwritten notes on the new syllabus for IBDP Math for 2021 - Analysis & Approaches HL (A&A HL). It is 111 pages - 24 on Algebra, 19 on Functions, 22 on Trigonometry, 16 on Statistics, 30 on Calculus. So it is far more concise than the ~1000 pages of an HL textbook. It is split into 5 topics, which all have the SL content within them. There will also be significant overlap with the Applications and Interpretations course. I wrote and sold notes for the old IB courses, which have been fairly successful, so I am in the process of writing notes for the new courses, from scratch.
TOPICS:
1 - Algebra
2 - Functions
3 - Trigonometry and Geometry
4 - Statistics and Probability
5 - Calculus

Handwritten notes that I made for my HL students on the Calculus Option (topic 9) in the IB. These are 23 pages of concise, rich notes, that clarify some of the more complicated aspects of this topic such as Rolle’s theorem or homogeneous differential equations. I use these to inform my teaching, to tell me what I need to cover next, as well as giving the notes to my students so that they can listen properly instead of frantically copying things down from the board. Subtopics:
9.1 - Limits, Squeeze Thm., L’Hôpital’s Rule, Improper Integrals
9.2 - Series and Convergence tests
9.3 - Power Series, Taylor/Maclaurin Series, Error Bounds
9.4 - Continuity, Differentiability, Rolle’s Thm., Mean Value Theorem, Reimann Sums
9.5 - Differential Equations, Separable, Linear, Homogeneous, Euler’s Method, Slope Fields
If you are an HL teacher (or student) and you found these helpful, please ‘follow’ me, then you will see as soon as additional content for the HL course.
