ACT mini-lessons: mathematics (senior)

These mathematics mini-lessons are designed for senior students (aged 17-18) looking to hone their authentic critical thinking (ACT), link their subject knowledge to the real-world, and strengthen their university application profile.

They enable all your students to share the cognitive benefits of TOK, without being enrolled on the IB Diploma Programme. To see a definition for the subject areas, consult this page.

Join us to access the mini-lessons!

Members of the site receive 15 mini-lessons every month, which can be used by any teacher to develop authentic critical thinking, link their lessons to contemporary global events, and explore epistemological issues related to their subject. Join us here!

In the meantime, please help yourself to some of our latest mini-lessons (below), which demonstrate how we help learners to go beyond the headlines, and develop a deep understanding of what’s going on the contemporary real-world.

Help your learners to exit their echo chambers!

Our online and in-person workshops offer the usual support for students writing the essay and exhibition, and TOK departments designing great courses.

But our training sessions go much further than this: by focusing on authentic critical thinking, they demonstrate how to help learners confront, rather than confirm, their biases and assumptions, and exit their echo chambers. This makes them accessible and relevant for all teachers, whatever their subject or programme. Read more here.
