Review quote

I am impressed by this book which presents IB mathematics in a very attractive and user friendly manner. I will certainly be recommending its use. I very much like the way that each chapter has had a theme assigned to it, together with a couple of pages of TOK on that theme. I also quite like the order in which topics have been arranged. David Getling, Mathematics Teacher, Bavarian International School, Germany I think the chapter titles for the HL book are absolutely inspired as they really do help to place Maths in an international context and put TOK at the forefront. Titles such as 'Maths as a language' and 'aesthetics in maths' are so much better than 'functions' or 'logarithms and exponentials'. Paul Jackson, Head of Mathematics, Island School, Hong Kong The committee thinks the books are well written, easy to follow, and they like the TI-NSpire technology throughout. Education Ministry, Canada The Oxford IB course books are the best ever resource for both teachers and students. They are practical, insightful and fully in line with the IB Course outcomes. Pat Hanson, IB Coordinator, Academy of the Holy Cross, USA We have adopted most of the Oxford course books for our school. We find them well written, well linked to TOK issues and age appropriate. Sheta Saha, IB Coordinator, Chatsworth International School, Singapore We like the structure with presumed knowledge, pre-test and exam style questions for each chapter. The including of IA requirements is very positive, so the students have full access to them through the process. Annemarie Matsson, IB Mathematics Teacher, Katedralskolan Skara, Sweden
