This fresh new approach fully covers the Extended Cambridge IGCSE in Mathematics and supports students to achieve the strongest results in exams. Providing a sequential and logical teaching path through the full syllabus, it thoroughly and euqally addresses all the four curriculum areas. Focused on active learning, it includes lots of worked examples and graduated exercises that will develop confidence as students progress. A full set of answers is included, and a free CD loaded with conceptual support for every part of the book further confirms understanding. EALfriendly, with clear pictures and diagrams, a Teacher Resource Kit is also available, providing ideas, lesson plans and support. Endorsed by Cambridge International Examinations.

The content is excellent and is the most comprehensive match to the 0580 extended syllabus that I have reviewed in any text. The experience of the author is very apparent in the construction of the chapters, examples and exercises. It is a very valuable resource to teachers that may be new to teaching 0580 IGCSE as it so closely matches the syllabus. Reviewer Very clear layout with lots of practice questions. We are working through chronologically using the CD PowerPoints before doing selected questions from a group of sections. This book is thorough yet to the point. It has everything we look for in IGCSE material  very clear easy to follow layout, with to the point explanations and thorough practice. Amazon Reviewer
