Featuring a wealth of digital content, this concept-based Print and Enhanced Online Course Book Pack has been developed in cooperation with the IB to provide the most comprehensive support for the new Diploma Programme Mathematics: applications and interpretation Standard Level syllabus, for first teaching in September 2019.


  • Address all aspects of the new DP Mathematics: applications and interpretation SL syllabus via an Enhanced Online Course Book Pack - made up of one full-colour, print textbook and one online textbook, including extensive teacher notes.
  • Ensure learners are ready to tackle each topic with targeted 'Prior Knowledge' worksheets, linked to 'Before You Start' summaries and exercises at the start of every chapter.
  • Deliver in-depth coverage of all topics through clear explanations and worked solutions, animated worked examples, differentiated exercises and worksheets, with answers provided.
  • Adopt a concept-based approach with conceptual lenses and microconcepts woven into every chapter, plus rich investigations that integrate factual and conceptual questions - leading to meaningful, content-specific conceptual understanding.
  • Deepen mathematical understanding via inquiry-based tasks that relate to the content of each chapter, 'international mindedness' features, regular links to Theory of Knowledge, and activities that target ATL skills.
  • Support students' development of a mathematical toolkit, as required by the new syllabus, with modelling and investigation activities presented in each chapter, including prompts for reflection, and suggestions for further study.
  • Thoroughly prepare students for IB assessment via in-depth coverage of course content, overviews of all requirements, exam-style practice questions and papers, and a full chapter supporting the new mathematical exploration (IA).
  • Includes support for the most popular Graphic Display Calculator models.
