Build solid mathematical understanding and develop key conceptual connections. The inquiry-based approach integrates the MYP key concepts, helping you shift to a concept-based approach and cement mathematical comprehension. Fully comprehensive and matched to the Revised MYP to help you progress learners into DP Mathematics.


  • Progress your learners into IB Diploma - fully comprehensive and matched to the Next Chapter curriculum
  • Drive mathematical confidence - extensive practice refines and progresses skills and understanding
  • Develop understanding and flexibility - integrated global contexts equip learners to recognize and manipulate new principles
  • Enable learners to confidently apply understanding as they progress - strengthening performance in the eAssessment and IB Diploma
  • Support higher level thinking skills through an approach grounded in factual, conceptual and debatable questions
  • Develop conceptual, integrated teaching in the best way for your learners - learn by mathematical unit or by key concept
  • Develop meaningful cross-curricular connections that help learners recognize and manipulate mathematical ideas in other disciplines
  • Fully matched to the Next Chapter curriculum, supports the Common Core, and preparation for the eAssessment

  • Comprehensive from example point of view. Interesting investigation and explorations are discussed. A perfect book for inquiry-based learning since each chapter is designed in such way that teachers get excellent ideas for inquiry (questions at the beginning of the chapter). It is a rare treat to see the book instil deep pedagogical base for developing students' concepts. A good book for establishing foundation for IB DP. Key feature of the book is 'Reflect and discuss' component. This component helps students to involve with thoughts that they have before, during, and after a particular lesson or lessons. It is challenging for both students and teachers. Book presents examples with beautiful and colourful images. Brief but apt explanation with excellent illustrations. In terms of suggestion, rigorously designed exercises for mediocre students. - Ms. Poorvi Doshi, Head of Mathematics, The Galaxy School, India
