**WHY CHOOSE THIS SYLLABUS? **

**Key qualification features** – Unitised structure with all units equally weighted, allowing many different combinations of units and greater flexibility. Three exam series per year means students can sit unit exams when they are ready.

**Clear and straightforward question papers** – our question papers are clear and accessible for students of all ability ranges. Our mark schemes are straightforward so that the assessment requirements are clear.

**Broad and deep development of learners’ skills** – we designed the International Advanced Level qualifications to:

- develop their understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment

- develop abilities to reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs

- extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques and use them in more difficult, unstructured problems

- develop an understanding of coherence and progression in mathematics and of how different areas of mathematics can be connected

- recognise how a situation may be represented mathematically and understand the relationship between ‘real-world’ problems and standard and other mathematical models and how these can be refined and improved

- use mathematics as an effective means of communication

- read and comprehend mathematical arguments and articles concerning applications of mathematics

- acquire the skills needed to use technology such as calculators and computers effectively, recognise when such use may be inappropriate and be aware of limitations

- develop an awareness of the relevance of mathematics to other fields of study, to the world of work and to society in general

- take increasing responsibility for their own learning and the evaluation of their own mathematical development.
