About the Book

Year Published: 2012
Page Count: 760

Prints of this textbook before 2015 included a student CD, but any later reprints (2015 onwards) have moved all of the CD features to Snowflake - our online learning system.

Mathematics for the International Student: Mathematics SL has been written to embrace the syllabus for the two-year Mathematics SL Course, first examined in 2014. 

In this third edition, chapters are arranged to follow the same order as the chapters in our Mathematics HL (Core) third edition, making it easier for teachers who have combined classes of SL and HL students. Syllabus references are given at the beginning of each chapter. The new edition reflects the new Mathematics SL syllabus.

More lower level questions have been added at the start of the exercises, to make them more suitable for a range of ability levels. Discussion topics for the Theory of Knowledge have been included in this edition.

In response to the introduction of a calculator-free examination paper, a large number of questions have been added and categorised as 'calculator' or 'non-calculator'. In particular, the final chapter contains over 160 examination-style questions to help students prepare for examinations.
