Standard mathematics aims to give all students a sound knowledge of basic mathematical principles while allowing them to develop the skills needed to meet the objectives of MYP mathematics.

Extended mathematics consists of the standard mathematics framework supplemented by additional topics and skills. This level provides the foundation for students who wish to pursue further studies in mathematics: for example, mathematics higher level (HL) as part of the IB Diploma programme. Extended mathematics provides greater breadth and depth to the standard mathematics framework.

During the final two years of the programme, separate classes for standard mathematics and extended will be given. In MYP years 1 to 3, students often take a common differentiated mathematics course or pursue an accelerated course.

There are four assessment criteria:

* A: Knowing and Understanding

* B: Investigating Patterns

* C: Communicating

* D: Applying mathematics in real-life contexts
