Mathematical Studies for the IB DIPLOMAИздательство:
Ric Pimental, Terry Wall Год:
Mathematical Studies has been written specially for students following the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Each topic opens with the syllabus content, and exactly follows the syllabus order, covering the latest syllabus requirements in full. This is invaluable in helping teachers to plot a way through the course, and for students when the time comes for revision.
A unique feature of the book is the inclusion of step-by-step instructions on the use of the graphic display calculator. The text also makes reference to Autograph and Geogebra software. Each topic has clear explanations, worked examples, and plenty of practice exercises to reinforce learning. The Student Assessments at the end of each topic can be used as homework or to test learning.
Students who are taking this course have a variety of backgrounds and widely differing levels of previous mathematical knowledge: the Presumed Knowledge Assessments identify areas of weakness so that teachers can address these before tackling each topic. Mathematics has a rich historical and multi-cultural background, and the book is littered with such references. There are ideas for project work in each topic: internal assessment of the project is a key part of assessment.
