Michelle Coyle, A very useful text
Cebu International School,

I use the Standard Level Mathematics text as a teaching resource. The layout is appealing and very easy to follow. The explanations are easy to understand, and although I use other textbooks, I keep coming back to this one for example problems. The GDC instructions are very helpful for the students and give ample problems to solve. Pearson Baccalaureate does a great job in preparing the students for the IB Papers.

I find that there is a good balance between theory, solved examples, and problems to be solved. Also, good balance between easy and difficult problems. I think that the side information is very helpful, and the historical connections are most welcome.
