Teaching ideas provide inspiration for creating dynamic lessons with practical, interactive elements.

Exemplar exam questions show typical student responses to IB-style exam questions. Common errors are indicated and guidance on answering exam questions is provided.

Support and extension worksheets allow students to consolidate their learning in the classroom or as homework. Separate answer sheets provide an opportunity for self-marking by students.

Comprehensive schemes of work outline lesson structures and detail all the resources available on this website and in the Coursebook.

The syllabus requires students to be able to draw and label particular diagrams. These assessed diagrams have been reproduced from the Coursebook as downloadable files for whole-class teaching.
