Mathematics Higher Level for the IB Diploma

Author: Paul Fannon, Vesna Kadelburg, Ben Woolley and Stephen Ward

COMING SOON FOR 2012 SYLLABUS IMPLEMENTATION!

 

Description
This highly illustrated coursebook and accompanying CD-ROM forms part of the completely new Mathematics for the IB Diploma series. It has been written to specifically cover the new IB Higher Level syllabus. The progressive approach encourages cumulative learning, ending with a dedicated chapter explicitly for combined exercises that require skills from many topics – a typical trick in the IB Examinations.
