For some unknown reason I watched this video on facebook about a washing machine that you power by pumping a pedal. It´s a well made video and a neat looking product but some incorrect use of terminology. 500 Watts per cycle just doesn´t make sense. 500 Watts is the energy per unit time so the longer the cycle the more energy is used. A washing machine cycle is about 1 hour (says...
The InThinking Physics site has been a life saver. Chris's explanations of syllabus content and assessment criteria have helped enormously with planning and programming. The inclusion of marked IAs in particular was really beneficial when I started teaching...
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.
InThinking Physics is a valuable resource. If you are teaching IB Physics for the first time, then it is an absolute must-have. The materials provided are practical, easy to follow and full of interesting resources.

PreparationsI am an IB Physics teacher at VI LO Kielce Poland, I have been organising a number of exchange projects within various European programmes, but not with IB schools. I have contacted all the IB school in neighbouring countries, but did not manage...

PreparationsAbsolutely, that would be a great idea. Do you have a school in mind?

PreparationsFo some time now I've been considering that Group 4 project would offer a perfect opportunity for school co-operation, what do you think?

Reflections on active learningHi Chris, Thank you so so so much for this website! The school where I work is new to the IB, we just started off 2 years ago. We are following the IB and the national curriculum. Everything is new to us and this website is soooo helpful....
