Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics: Core and Extended Coursebook with CD-ROM

Karen Morrison and Nick Hamshaw

This highly illustrated coursebook has been written by an experienced author and an IGCSE Maths teacher to cover the complete Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics (0580) syllabus. Core and Extended material is combined in one book, offering a one-stop-shop for all students whatever their capabilities.

The extended material is clearly marked, and useful hints are included in the margins for Core students needing more support, leaving the narrative clear and to the point. Students doing the Extended course are given access to the parts of the Core syllabus that they need without having to use an additional book.

Answers to book exercises and exam questions are at the back of the book, with additional exercises and interactive questions on the CD-ROM. The coursebook will be accompanied by two Practice Books – one each for Core and Extended – to offer targeted practice.

Mac users please note that CD-ROMS don't autostart when used with Macs they will need to be started manually. If you have any queries please visit our customer support page or contact customer services.

  • Complete coverage of the 0580 syllabus in a single book means no more juggling books for students and teachers.
  • Progressive and repetitive exercises complete with answers can be used for classroom work or self-assessment.
  • Worked examples are provided throughout to demonstrate typical workings and thought processes.
  • Hints are included in the margins for additional support, including useful tips for the examination.
  • Fast forward / rewind boxes connect related topics in the coursebook.
  • A Glossary to explain new and difficult words.
  • Exam and Exam-style questions to provide lots of exam practice.
  • Accompanying CD-ROM includes interactice questions, revision worksheets for Core and Extended complete with answers, and worked solutions for selected questions from exam past papers. There is also a useful chart to map the book content to syllabus.
