Welcome to the home page of the updated **IBmaths4u.com**. We invite you to take some time to explore our pages and get a sense of IB Mathematics.

**IBmaths4u.com** was the first forum for IB math since 2012. The new design is no longer a forum but has many more pros than the previous version. However, the majority of the content was migrated from the forum version. Almost every question is accompanied by its worked solution after reviewed by our IB mathematics experts.

Many studies have shown that students felt difficult in mathematics because, they had difficulty understanding and retrieving concepts, formulas, facts, and procedures. Therefore, we try to produce educational materials (applications, books, and websites) as simple as possible. We hope your visit to IBmaths4u.com brings you a greater love of mathematics, both for its excellence and its power to help solve everyday problems.

*Mathematics is the most beautiful and most powerful creation of the human spirit.*” Stefan Banach

*Mathematics knows no races or geographic boundaries; for mathematics, the cultural world is one country*.” David Hilbert

** Our publications**

**Our Educational Apps**

Educational apps have rapidly become one of the best ways to grasp new ideas, revise subjects and learn more about mathematics.

Apart from this website, **IBmaths4u.com** in cooperation with **mathematics4u**.**com** develops high quality **free** apps for **IB Mathematics** and **A-Level Maths.** Our apps include a lot of video lessons, many solvers, theory and are 100% **free**. As a result, these apps help students revise and understand the main math topics of their courses. In conclusion, our math apps made for your iPhone, iPad, and Android will keep your mind active outside the classroom.

The IB Math app covers the major part of the syllabus of IB Mathematics Higher Level, Standard Level, and Math Studies.

The app and this website include some well chosen video lessons by Mr. James Sousa. The website of Mr. Sousa provides over 5,000 free video lessons with no ads. In addition, all of the videos are closed captioned.

## About Mathematics

The science of numbers and its operations, combinations, generalizations, and abstractions. Since the 17th century, mathematics has been an essential complement to physical science and technology and played a similar role in life sciences. Above all, mathematics has developed far beyond primary considerations in many cultures to serve practical needs, such as trade and agriculture.

All mathematical concepts are combinations of axioms and theorems which can logically be derived from the axioms. It is a historical fact that new developments in mathematics were mainly concentrated between the 15th century and the end of the 20th century in Europe and North America.

## About IB Math

Since each IB Math student has different needs, interests, and skills, there are currently four courses in IB mathematics.

- Mathematical studies standard level
- Mathematics SL
- Mathematics higher level
- Further mathematics higher level

Every course meets the needs of a particular group of students. Therefore it is essential to choose the course that suits every IB math student best based on the following criteria. Firstly, their mathematical skills and the type of mathematics in which they can be successful. Secondly, their interest in mathematics and the specific areas of interest for them. Finally, their other selections of subjects under the diploma programme.
