`If you are considering purchasing a new Higher Level maths text, I would highly recommend this book - and I'm sure your students will appreciate the choice. I like the way the chapters are themed, with a couple of pages devoted to TOK at the end of each one. I am also impressed with the content. A typical example of this would be the very clear manner in which synthetic division is explained - the best I've come across. I was also pleased to see Decartes' Rule of Signs and the Rational Zero Theorem: the book abounds with such touches. Another nice feature is the CD, which, among other goodies, contains the entire book.' David Getling, Mathematics Teacher, Bavarian International School, Germany

`I am enjoying using the HL text; it is a lot of fun. I like the explorations, historical information, imaginative questions and the efficiency of the exercises. It's a challenging and interesting book.' David Harris, Head of Mathematics, St Clare's, UK

`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

`It contains everything needed for IB higher level and contains a section which shows you what skills you need to know for Higher Level Maths in IB.' H M Iqbal, Amazon Reviewer

`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
