# Maths HL(Higher Level) & SL(Standard Level)

In an IB diploma, group 5th in mathematics has four courses:

Mathematics studies SL, Mathematics SL, Mathematics HL and, Further Mathematics HL.

A student must take one from those courses, but if you take mathematics HL. So, it is also compulsory to study one extra topic apart from the core topics of HL.

### Mathematics Studies SL

You have to study the following topics in this course:

- Numbers and algebra
- sets, logic, and probability
- Functions
- Geometry and trigonometry
- Statistics
- Introductory differential calculus
- Financial mathematics

### Mathematics SL & HL

These are the following common core topics in SL as well as in HL level:

- Algebra
- Functions and equations
- Circular functions and trigonometry
- Vectors
- Statistics and probability
- Calculus

### Extra Requirements for mathematics HL

In mathematics HL you also have to study at least one of the following topic:

- Statistics and probability
- Sets, relations, and groups
- calculus, formerly series, and differential equations
- Discrete Mathematics

### Further Mathematics HL

This course contains the following topics:

- Linear algebra
- Geometry
- Statistics and probability
- Sets, relations, and groups
