MYP Science 2 for the International Student

By | Copyright Year:2016 | ISBN-13: 9780170353472

The Science for the international student series provides students with a variety of engaging and stimulating formats for learning, understanding and immersion in both the Middle Years Programme philosophy of the International Baccalaureate and the science content. The features of these student books have been specifically designed to support this and to deliver exciting content in a variety of ways. They provide an emphasis on the global contexts for learning in science, ranging from the challenge to provide better and more equal access to medicines worldwide, to considering global environmental challenges such as global warming. An emphasis on investigative and experimental allows students to work and think like real scientists.
