More About This Textbook


This full-colour title is fully in line with the new separate-subject GCSE physics specifications, including IGCSE. It is appropriate for use throughout the world for GCSE studies. The language level and design have been carefully refined to make the book accessible to students of all abilities. Features to assist preparation for examinations include key topic lists at the start of each chapter, key ideas summaries at the end of each chapter, self-assessment questions throughout the text and sections of longer examination-style questions. A key feature is the extensive use of detailed worked examples that guide students through the concepts, particularly the mathematical ideas. Differentiation is built in via the use of colour-coded extension material for higher achievers. In addition, novel contexts are used to illustrate the concepts; students will find this book appealing and accessible.
