MINDBOURNE ACADEMY PRESENTS

ADVANCED PROGRAMME MATHEMATICS 2021



THE IEB INTERNATIONAL SENIOR SECONDARY CERTIFICATE IN FURTHER STUDIES (ADVANCED PROGRAMME MATHEMATICS)

As from 2022, the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) will be offering an international qualification called the International Secondary Certificate (IEB-ISC).

Further Studies in Advanced Programme Mathematics (AP Maths) is one of the subjects offered.

This subject has been benchmarked by UK National Agency for international qualifications and is comparable to the GCE Advanced (A) level standard.

AP Maths is now a worthwhile certificate for South African students wishing to pursue tertiary studies both nationally and abroad.

The Mindbourne Academy will be offering this valuable subject during 2022.

AP Maths is a three-year course (Grade 10, 11 and 12).

What are the advantages of studying AP Maths?

Students who study AP Maths are far more equipped to cope academically at university. They are exposed to advanced topics in Mathematics which prepares them for tertiary studies, particularly in the faculties of science and engineering.

Many courses at university require Statistics, which is traditionally a stumbling-block for students. The Statistics module in AP Maths will help to prepare students for this challenging subject.

Some of the topics studied in the normal school Maths syllabus are taken to a much higher level in AP Maths, thus enabling learners to perform extremely well in these topics.

What topics are covered in AP Maths?

Calculus, Algebra, Finance, Modelling, Statistics, and Graph Theory.

What study materials are required?

Textbooks and additional study notes. Learners will also have access to the video lessons on the Mindbourne website (www.mindbourne.com).

What about assessment?

Grade 10 and 11 learners write a test at the end of each term and a final exam at the end of the year. Grade 12 learners write a test at the end of the first and second term followed by a prelim exam in September. The final examination is external and is set and marked by the IEB.

Who are the presenters?

The course is created by Mark Phillips and Kevin Phillips and will be presented by fully qualified AP Mathematics Teachers. Mark is an author of the highly successful Mindbourne Mathematics and AP Maths textbooks. He has over 25 years of teaching experience in both state and private schools. Kevin is a graduate from WITS University. He is presently a teacher of AP Maths and an author of AP Maths textbooks. He is also the creator of the online video lessons.
