    wouldn't be extremely silly to include calculus in economics, but exclude it from physics?
    just sounds v. far-fetched to me.
    Remember the economics syllbus won't be changing until 2012...so if calculus is really being added...they might add it to physics possibly by then. But I still sort of doubt it - because then math (the calculus portion) would have to be taught earrlier...

    I think the idea is that you can do any subject (apart from further maths, obviously) with only maths studies. From the point of view of wanting to understand stuff it's bloody stupid to have calculus-free physics, but that's the way the IB works.
