It's not easy to explain so I made a video showing one of the paths through a learning network on the gas laws. Basically you start with a problem and are guided through by asking and answering questions. If you don´t know how to make a step you are directed towards a relevant video tutorial. Anyway, here´s the vid.
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...

New revision aid for studentsEvery time I go to Studyib and come back to thinkib.net, 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

(Eng HL) Resonance activityYou don't. What I did was to adjust the best fit lines to fit the data manually.

(Eng HL) Resonance activityHi 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?

Case study 5Hi 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.

Tests and quizzesHello 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?

(Eng HL) Fluid dynamicsHi 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...
