Textbooks for Mathematics HL and Mathematics SL

Textbooks for Math HL and Math SL. Two textbooks written by Tim Garry and Ibrahim Wazir that are fully revised 2nd editions providing comprehensive coverage for the new 2014 syllabuses. Each textbook comes with an e-book (accessed through a website) containing a complete digital copy of the text along with numerous additional material.



Tim's InThinking site has been invaluable to me as a new IB teacher. Before starting any new syllabus item, I use the site to gain a better understanding of the types of problems that my students need to be able to solve. It has helped me to format...
