I consider Chris Hamper's InThinking page for IB Physics to be an indispensable resource for the course. Whether you use his textbook or not the IA section alone is worth the subscription cost.

I am very pleased with the website and the material. Love the animated multiple choice test questions. That is a great way to ask questions and cannot be accomplished with questions on paper. Also, the labs are very good and the suggestions are very...

    Every time I go to Studyib and come back to, it asks me to login again and claims that my password is wrong. I have reset my password twice in the last 5 minutes. Can this be fixed? Thanks

    You don't. What I did was to adjust the best fit lines to fit the data manually.

    Hi Chris, how do you get "two sets of points for the y displacement of top and bottom"? How do you get it to see the points as two distinct series?

    Hi Larysa, The gp4 project is not assessed. It used to be but now students just have to do a self reflection of about 50 words.

    Hello Chris, I would like to ask you how you grade IB HL Physics exams. If a student gets 50% or 70% in a Mock exam what grades you give him? What conversion do you use to go from % to IB grades 1-7?

    It must be the same on each side or the section would be accelerating.

    Hi Chris, What kid of answer are you expecting from the students to the question "If the velocity in the lower section is constant what can you deduce about the Pressure inside this section of pipe and the pressure outside?" Is there an equation...
