`I highly recommend this book to anyone, teacher or student, embarking on the new 2012 Maths Standard Level syllabus. While there is no one correct order for teaching a maths syllabus, I am a keen advocate of teaching from the start to the end of a book when it presents topics in a suitable order. This book may certainly be used in this manner. Everything is well explained, with plenty of examples, well-chosen exercises, and good use of colour. Students and teachers will also appreciate the GDC examples that use the modern TI-Nspire calculator. Finally I should mention the CD, which among other things contains the whole book and instructions for using Casio and TI-84 calculators.' David Getling, Mathematics Teacher, Amazon Review

`The book looks amazing! I can't wait to get the inspection copy. It looks very user friendly and complete. It is so ironic to see the GDC section with steps outlined as I was working on my own handout for the students. This is wonderful!' Melani Decelles, IB Mathematics Teacher, Kelvin High School, Canada

`The book is great. I'm an IB Standard Level Maths teacher and I've already recommended it to my students as it is so much better than the out-of-date text book provided by the school! ' Mathematics SL Teacher, Amazon Review

`The committee thinks the books are well written, easy to follow, and they like the TI-NSpire technology throughout' Education Ministry, Canada

`We have ordered the Mathematics SL and Mathematical Studies books, and we love them.' Padmini Nadar-Japal, IB Coordinator, Windhoek International School, Namibia

`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
