    There are 3 maths courses, in order of difficulty:

    Further Maths - SL only - take as a group 6 subject along with Mathematics HL
    Mathematics HL - Do all the stuff in Maths SL, some additional HL stuff and then a Option topic from a selection
    Mathematics SL - previously called Maths Methods SL. Like Maths HL but easier with no additional Option
    Maths Studies - SL only - AFAIK it focusses on application of maths while Maths HL and SL has more pure maths stuff

    Further Maths basically do all the Maths HL Options and then some more.

    Hehe, so we were the last to do it... :P - It was pretty fascinating, but very difficult (and there was nobody at our school available to teach...)

    I would have loved to do FM but my school could not offer it given that we were only 2 people doing Maths HL :ninja:
