With material integrated to include international and historical perspectives, students are encouraged to think critically and make connections to other subjects and to world issues. Includes material for cross curricular connections to help students think critically about science and consider its evolution, full coverage of the core and AHL as well as selective coverage of the Options, provides a wealth of illustrations to help explain difficult concepts, material for CAS and the extended essay as well as examination questions included for critical thinking, examination practice and reinforcement of concepts learned.
This concise guide provides the content needed for the Chemistry IB diploma at both Standard and Higher Level. It follows the structure of the IB Programme exactly and includes all the options.

This ethnographic study of an international curriculum program in China provides a holistic picture of classroom communication and describes patterns of discursive practice so that readers might vicariously experience the discursive construction of intercultural understanding. Through critical discourse analysis, this book reveals unequal access to meaning-making in everyday communication and explains these asymmetries in power.
This handbook is written for any student between the ages of 15 and 19 studying Chemistry. Its content meets the core chemistry requirements of IGCSE, IBDP, A-Level and AP courses. The material will also help an undergraduate whose course requires a basic foundation in Chemistry. It offers an alternative, succinct perspective to enable students to understand key concepts and can be used as a concise reference resource or a review guide. Each topic contains comprehensive explanations supported by diagrams and worked examples. The final sections of the book hold useful reference material for experimental work and offer guidance on how to write laboratory reports. There is also a series of practice calculation questions with solutions.
