In this investigation, students use their knowledge of perimeter and linear sequences to explore properties of a uniquely defined shape.
Including the assessment, rubric, task specific clarification, marking guidelines and sample answer.
Recommended for MYP4.

In this investigation, students use their knowledge of translation, rotation and reflection to explore the effect on coordinates after transformations.
Including the assessment, rubric, task specific clarification, marking guidelines and sample answer.
Recommended for MYP3. Optional use of Geogebra to help with transformations, but can be done on paper.

In this investigation, students use their knowledge of the sine function and transformations of functions to explore key points on the curve.
Including the assessment, rubric, task specific clarification, marking guidelines and sample answer.
Recommended for MYP5 extended. Use of Desmos (or Geogebra) is required.

Overview
This booklet is ideal for students preparing for the eAssessment or at the end of MYP5/beginning of DP to review prior learning. Comes with mark scheme and cover sheet for reflection.
Each booklet has three sections (communication is assessed throughout) which should take 20 - 25 minutes each:
Section 1: 4 short/medium questions assessing knowing and understanding (criteria A and C)
Section 2: a real life application question (criteria D and C)
Section 3: an investigation (criterion B and C)
Note: there is space to answer section 1 questions in the booklet but, due to the nature of an application problem and investigation, it is advised that students do this on a separate paper.
Specific
Topics in this booklet:
Trigonometry (2 marks)
Averages (4 marks)
Simultaneous equations (6 marks)
Formulae (rearranging and substitution) (8 marks)
Real life - proportion in a scientific context (20 marks)
Investigation - probability leading to geometric patterns (20 marks)
How to use
Homework - it is expected that students will need 72 minutes for the whole booklet so it could be given over a longer period of time or each section could be given as a shorter task. If students were self-assessing against the markscheme, this could very nicely fit into three 30 minute homework tasks.
Developed into a unit assessment - the real life problem and investigation can both easily be developed into criteria based assessments purely by removing the subparts and giving students the flexibility to choose their own methods to solve the problem posed. All strands of criterion B and D are assessed in each booklet. Note: you would need to create your own rubric/task specific clarifications for this but the solutions on the markscheme would still be applicable.
In class assessment - for those preparing for the eAssessment this is a great resource to test on demand recall of mixed concepts. Again, if a lesson or double lesson time does not allow for 72 minutes of assessment, different sections of the booklet can be given over a series of lessons.
Class activity - end of MYP review, start of DP prior knowledge check, revision activity. Questions could be given as a quiz, a relay, a team challenge etc.
Self study - some students will want a resource to prepare for the eAssessment, or for general review of their learning at the end of MYP. Coupled with the markscheme, students can work through this independently.
Basis for a study plan - the reflection and next steps section can be used once the marks are filled into the given table. Students should note their strengths and areas for improvement (either mathematical concept e.g. trigonometry, or criterion specific e.g. verifying a general rule). This will make it easier to set goals and plan next steps for progress.

In this investigation, students use their knowledge of mean, standard deviation and variance to explore progressing sets of numbers.
Including the assessment, rubric, task specific clarification, marking guidelines and sample answer.
Recommended for MYP4 extended. Use of maths is fun standard deviation calculator is recommended.

Bundle

This bundle contains everything needed for students to feel confident ahead of sitting their eAssessment.
4 (30minutes - 1 hour) lessons detailing everything students need to know about the eAssessment (tools, structure, responding to the command terms, level of communication required etc.)
One investigation to complete in class with rubric
3 more investigations for extra practice (markscheme included)
One real-life problem to complete in class with rubric
4 more real-life problems for extra practice (markscheme included)
A class quiz (to review knowing and understanding)
A digital, colour-coded revision checklist with links to practice materials
6 practice “mini” (72 minutes each, all 4 criteria, mixed topics) eAssessments to set as homework or for in class revision
A full practice (digital or printable) mock eAssessment in the style of past papers

Support your students as they prepare for the eAssessment with this FULL (100 marks, 2 hours) mock/practice paper that you can assign physically as a PDF or digitally via a unique Desmos link.
Includes:
Printable questions
Link to Desmos version of activity
Thorough markscheme and recommended grade boundaries
Colour coded grading sheet to help provide student feedback
What makes this resource great:
-Questions on topics from all four branches (numerical and abstract reasoning, thinking with models, spatial reasoning and reasoning with data).
-Follows the structure of the real e-assessment with five criterion A test questions, two criterion D real life problems and one extended criterion B investigation.
-No extended topics from the skills framework are included, making this suitable for all students.
Note: while the Desmos task will let students practice typing responses and has an on-screen calculator, the tech is not as extensive as the real e-assessment (no auto copy from the calculator, no timer, fewer interactivities and media additions). It is advised to have them download past e-assessments from myib if possible, or practise completing tasks on assessprep if your school has this package.
Please send through any feedback or questions that would enable this to be a more useful resource for you.

In this investigation, students use their knowledge of showing outcomes by listing and sample space diagrams to explore the chances of winning in different games.
Including the assessment, rubric, task specific clarification, marking guidelines and sample answer.
Recommended for MYP2.

Engage your students and connect with the core of the IB with this easy start of year activity. It allows you to get to know your class AND create a display showing off their unique learner profile. Alternatively, a fun activity at any time of the year to lead into learning about or reflecting on the learner profile attributes. Suitable for older primary or secondary students (could be adapted for younger students by making the wording more accessible or including pictures.)
How to use:
Each student gets a copy of the Google sheet (or print a physical version).
There are 5 questions. Each one has 10 answers (corresponding to the 10 learner profile traits). Students need to rank the answers from 10 (most likely) to 1 (least likely).
On the last tab, the total points for each trait is shown alongside two graphs (pie/donut chart and a horizontal bar chart).
For a display, the graphs can be printed as is with the student’s name added. Or using the scores, students could design their own “profile” using the result table (e.g. a pyramid or a drawing of their profile with a word cloud inside showing higher ranking traits larger.)
If printed and completed as a physical quiz, totals need to be manually calculated.
Questions:
It’s a hot day, what are you cooling down with?
Over the next 20 years, what job could you imagine yourself in?
You are assigned to a group for a project, what are you doing?
You are given some gifts, which are you most happy about?
Your school plans an afternoon off timetable, which activity would you sign up to?
Also included is a supporting document that explains how each answer links to the assigned learner profile trait.

Plenty of “top tips” included throughout. Bonus resource: an interactive notebook with command term definitions, formula book, and useful mathematical notation.
Lesson 2 - preparing for part 1/criterion A questions. Working through an unfamiliar problem together, understanding what topics could come up, guidance for creating a study plan, mixed topic questions to be used for a group quiz or independently.
Bonus resource: digital self-assessment checklist with suggested resources to help revision.
