This is a completely new edition of the best-selling "Collins Longman Student Atlas". Created specifically for Key Stage 4 students, and a vital tool for all students, "Collins Student World Atlas" has been specifically designed for students aged 14-16 years. However, its well-researched uncluttered design makes it easy for all student use. This second edition has been extensively revised and updated. It features 128 pages of up-to-date reference and thematic mapping, 8 pages of World country-by-country statistics and a fully comprehensive index to all names appearing on reference maps. Thematic maps and accompanying graphs and tables adhere strictly to the National Curriculum guidelines and cover topics such as Tourism, Telecommunications, Environmental and socio-economic topics. All maps have been fully up-dated using the latest statistical information available. The inclusion of a selective list of web addresses on each thematic page ensures students are motivated to explore more deeply into a topic.
For this edition thematic mapping of the world has been expanded to include topics such as Human Development Index, World Trade, Prevalence of HIV/AIDS, Access to Safe water, Poverty, etc. High quality satellite imagery, which has been selectively used within special topic or study areas, supports data on the maps and is used to illustrate key environmental issues. Extensive lists of statistics for demographic and socio-economic facts provide up-to-date data for students wishing to create their own graphs to support individual geography, tourism, mathematics, economics or IT projects.show more
