Lucky bastard. My school "offers" it but that class has not been given in years.

So is it BC calc + other stuff or does it start where BC ends?

Well, you cant really compare it to the ap curiculum.

In terms of the ib curiculum, there are topics that you have to cover in hl math. Hl 1 and 2 covers all the required topics and there are like 4 or some additional optional topics, which is what further math teaches. It covers a whole range of topics. I dont quite remeber all of it, but i remeber a lot of linear algebra, geometry, number theory, and a bunch of others (these were either the hardest or funniest for me, that's y i remeber them). It sounds really simple when you see the word geometry and algebra, and you would probably think something along the lines of "oh that must be easy, i learned them when i was in middle school!" Well to be fair, you wouldnt be too far off, because the curriculum is built off of that. HOWEVER, the diffculty level of the question is incomparable. The questions were honestly so hard and my teacher often gets stuck on the question with us.

Our class size was really small, like single digit small, so it was really fun, but the diffculty and stress it couldve produced would be really hard to handle unless you love math, which i do.

The course might not be given because not enough people take it. I was fortunated enough to live in a fairly competitive school district, so at least some people sogned up.

Yeah I took a look at the syllabus provided by ib and it looked like that.

I do remember one of my math teachers saying math hl was for people who want to do math everyday and i would have been fine with it

As far as class size went I know that at least 4 of my class including myself signed up but the school refused as usual
