Completely new and extended edition of the best-selling Collins Student Atlas. Created specifically for Key Stage 4 students, and a vital tool for all students.
The Collins Student Atlas has been specifically designed for students aged 14-16, but its well-researched and uncluttered design makes it suitable for all students.
This fifth edition has been extensively revised, updated and extended. It features up-to-date reference and thematic mapping, mapping skills, country-by-country statistics and a fully comprehensive index to all names appearing on reference maps.
Thematic maps and accompanying graphs and tables adhere strictly to the National Curriculum guidelines and cover topics such as Tourism, Telecommunications, Environmental and socio-economic topics. All maps have been fully updated using the latest statistical information available. The inclusion of a selective list of web addresses on each thematic page ensures students are motivated to explore more deeply into a topic.
High quality satellite imagery, which has been selectively used within special topic or study areas, supports data on the maps and is used to illustrate key environmental issues.
Extensive lists of statistics for demographic and socio-economic facts provide up-to-date data for students wishing to create their own graphs to support individual geography, tourism, mathematics, economics or IT projects.
