# Oxford IB Course Preparation: Mathematics for IB Diploma Course Preparation

Directly linked to Oxford's bestselling DP Mathematics resources, this new Course Preparation resource thoroughly prepares students to meet the demands of IB Diploma Programme Mathematics. Ideal for students who have studied non-IB courses at pre-16 level, the text introduces learners to the IB approach, terminology and skills.

The focus of this book is to give students and teachers a solid introduction to the skills and approaches required for their DP Mathematics course. Following the IB DP curriculum and using a skills and concept-based approach this resource will mean that students can begin their DP course with a firm foundation of subject area content. An emphasis will be placed on getting students to make connections to their real world observations so that the learning authentic and applicable outside of the

classroom.

This book does not replace the course book content for DP but is in line with the latest DP syllabus updates including assessment details, subject terminology and syllabus content. Answers are available online.
