All the resources of the Oxford Atlas series - including the Oxford Atlas print edition, the Oxford Atlas obook, the Oxford Atlas Workbook and the Oxford Atlas iPad app - are elegantly designed and draw students into discovering and understanding the world around them. The entire Oxford Atlas suite is designed to deepen geographic understanding in Australian classrooms. The Oxford Atlas provides the most comprehensive topic coverage of any school atlas. Twenty-six geotheme topics, including disasters, plate tectonics and history, ensure the Oxford Atlas provides deep and relevant learning. The Oxford Atlas obook brings these themed topics to life with the added depth of interactive learning modules, while the Oxford Atlas Workbook enables students to consolidate their learning.
