  • This book would certainly be my choice for any future Maths Studies classes that I have to teach. The style is very student friendly. Explanations and examples are easy to follow, and GDC details are for the modern and versatile TI-Nspire. This book also offers a good number of investigations, there are plenty of exercises, with all answers provided, and there are many exam style questions too. At the back of the book are three chapters that students will find very useful: the internally accessed project, the use of the TI-Nspire, and prior learning. Also worth a mention is the CD which contains an enhanced version of the text and PDFs for those who still use a Casio or TI-84. - David Getling, Mathematics Teacher
  • 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
