3 All North Hills Students have the option to pursue the IB Diploma Must fulfill IB Diploma Requirements: CAS, TOK, EE 6 IBDP Courses (3, 3 )

4 What is the International Baccalaureate Diploma? Pre-university diploma in addition to NHP Diploma Utilizes international standards Based on an integrated curriculum 0.5% of Texas students take IB exams + + Source TEA Report on AP & IB Exam results,

5 The IB Diploma Is NOT a replacement for the North Hills Diploma. Grades in NHP IB classes are not based upon grades on IB exams (though NHP grades should corollate with student preparedness for IB exams). It is possible to get the NHP Diploma but not the IB Diploma (and vice-versa).

7 North Hills students take both AP and IB courses. Courses such as AP World History can be taken in 10 th grade. IB Diploma courses begin in 11 th grade, with the IB exam being taken in May of the 12 th grade year. AP courses often integrated with IB courses during the 11 th grade year, with students taking the AP exam in May of the 11 th grade year.

8 AP Compared to IB

9 Both AP & IB Offer courses widely accepted for college credit. Provide educational rigor and quality that helps prepare students for college. Are assessed externally, AP by the College Board and ETS, IB by the International Baccalaureate Organization. (AP fees ~$90 per exam, IB fees ~$125 per exam)

10 IB differs from AP IB provides a whole, integrated curriculum. Theory of Knowledge provides connections. Extended Essay requires independent research. CAS ensures well-roundedness. Assessments reflect those typically used in colleges to a greater degree than AP assessments

11 IB Diploma Requirements

12 IB CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK

13 IB Diploma Requirements Complete Central Elements (TOK, CAS, EE) Take Three Higher Level and Three Standard Level Courses One Course ( or ) From Each Subject Group Each course two years in length, except in some cases students can choose to take one course in a single year.

IB Mathematical Studies is for students who may not choose to pursue a career in mathematics or the experimental sciences. Its course of study emphasizes the application of mathematics in everyday situations. Mathematical concepts examined include probability and statistics, families of functions, sets and logic, geometry and trigonometry, introductory differential calculus, and financial mathematics. *Algebra II is the minimum pre-requisite for IB Math Studies. Students who have taken AP Statistics or Pre-Calculus will be best prepared for IB Math Studies, but students who have taken only Algebra II can be successful in Math Studies 2 if they are diligent. With IB Coordinator approval, students who have taken Algebra II can take IB Math Studies 2 during the junior year. GROUP 1 : Language A MATHEMATICS Geometry Algebra II Honors Pre-Calculus Algebra I Geometry Algebra II IB Math 1 (AP Calculus AB) IB Math 1 (Pre-Calculus) IB Mathematics 2 Note: IB Mathematics is designed for students with a sound and advanced math background. IB Mathematics prepares students for a university course of study that requires a solid foundation in mathematics. Examples of courses requiring such a background include experimental sciences such as chemistry, social sciences such as economics and psychology, and courses in finance and business administration. Mathematical concepts explored include functions and equations, circular functions and trigonometry, matrices, vectors, statistics and probability, and differential and integral calculus. These topics are similar to those in Math Studies, but are explored with much greater depth and rigor in Math. MATHEMATICS Geometry Algebra II Pre-Calculus IB Math 1 (AP Calculus BC) IB Math 1 (AP Calculus AB) IB Mathematics 2 Note: IB Mathematics is the most rigorous mathematics course offered at North Hills, and should only be pursued by those with an extremely sound mathematical foundation and great facility for and interest in the subject of mathematics. This course prepares students for a university course of study that requires a solid foundation in mathematics, and often IB Math students specialize in mathematics at the university level, either as their major or as a component of areas of study such as physics, engineering, or technology. Mathematical concepts explored include functions and equations, circular functions and trigonometry, matrices, vectors, statistics and probability, and differential and integral calculus. These topics are similar to those in Math, but are explored with greater depth and rigor. In addition, students delve further into the topic of differential series and equations for the Math option syllabus requirement.
