Synopsis

Cambridge IGCSE Student World Atlas by Collins Maps

Completely new atlas for international schools, specifically designed for use by students aged 11-16 years studying the IGCSE Geography syllabus or equivalent national syllabuses. This atlas has been specifically designed for IGCSE examination students; however its well-designed uncluttered layout makes it suitable for all equivalent syllabuses. Colour-coding on the titling and marginalia creates distinctive easy-to-use sections. An extensive world thematic map section introduces global issues such as Human Development Index; economic topics such as World trade, exports and imports, employment by economic sector; health issues such as doctors per person, prevalence of HIV/AIDS, infant mortality, living standards e.g. access to safe water, literacy, school enrolment, poverty; population indicators such as urbanization, population change and growth. All maps are accompanied with graphs and tables using the most up-to-date statistics available. A selection of Web addresses is also included for further study. Each of the continents is profiled for students and map coverage includes thematic mapping of the continents plus selected detailed reference and thematic mapping of focus countries. Thematic topics for individual countries have been carefully chosen to focus on issues appropriate to the country concerned. A separate section of statistical information provides key socio-economic facts and figures for all countries of the world. Each feature mapped in the atlas is listed in a fully comprehensive index and is referenced using full geographical co-ordinates.
