About the series:
The only DP resources developed directly with the IB, the Oxford IB Course Books are the most comprehensive core resources to support learners through their study. Fully incorporating the learner profile, resources are assessed by consulting experts in international-mindedness and TOK to ensure these crucial components are deeply embedded into learning. 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 * All of the Oxford IB course books are terrific. * Carolyn Hawkins, IB Coordinator, Cookeville High School, USA * The Oxford IB course books are the best ever resource for both teachers and students.
