“​The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated,
things simple ~Stan Gudder
Course Goals:
●
●
●
●
●
To develop a positive attitude towards the continued learning of mathematics.
To develop the ability to communicate mathematics with appropriate symbols and language as well as the ability to reflect
upon and evaluate the significance of their own student work.
To gain knowledge and develop an understanding of mathematical concepts as well as patience and persistence when solving
problems.
To appreciate the value, power, and beauty of mathematics and the recognition of its relationship with other disciplines and
with everyday life.
Introducing students to aspects of academic research in preparation for their high school research experience, including
investigating, planning, creating, and evaluating, as related to the I.B. Program.

3.
Have all materials ready for class; bring your book, notebook, folder, agenda, and pencil to write with every day.
Complete all homework ​ON TIME​. Late assignments are graded for half-credit and are only accepted within 24 hours of the
due date.
Be active! Participate in class. Volunteer to answer questions, discussions, and solve problems.
INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAM
The IB Middle Years Programme is an inclusive academic program that is offered at elementary and high schools
across the City of Chicago. IB provides a broad and balanced education that teaches students to think critically and
encourages them to draw connections between many disciplines and the real world. The program instills in students
an awareness and understanding of their own culture and of other cultures, values, and ways of life.
● Math IB Units (details to come in class)
o Who am I polygons project
o Board Game and presentation to the class
o International Adventure Brochure and presentation to the class
o Stained Glass Window Project
o Temperature Around the World
IB Math Criteria
Criterion A: Knowing and Understanding
• select appropriate mathematics when solving problems in both familiar and unfamiliar situation.
• apply the selected mathematics successfully when solving problems
• solve problems correctly in a variety of contexts
Criterion B: Investigating Patterns
• select and apply mathematical problem-solving techniques to discover complex patterns
• describe patterns as relationships and/or general rules consistent with findings.
• verify and justify relationships and/or general rules.
Criterion C: Communicating
• use appropriate mathematical language (notation, symbols and terminology) in both oral and written explanations.
• use different forms of mathematical representation to present information
• move between different forms of mathematical representation
• communicate complete and coherent mathematical lines of reasoning
• organize information using a logical structure
Criterion D: Applying mathematics in real-life contexts
• identify relevant elements of authentic real-life situations
• select appropriate mathematical strategies when solving authentic real-life situations
• apply the selected mathematical strategies successfully to reach a solution
• explain the degree of accuracy of a solution
• explain whether a solution makes sense in the context of the authentic real-life situation
IB summative tasks are assessed using IB criteria. The maximum level of achievement that students can attain is an 8-point
achievement level. The IB MYP conversion chart breaks down the criterion grade into a traditional 100-point scale grade.
