This is a great resource for IB Physics teachers. I have been using it and will continue using the same in future. The resources of IA are great. I can strongly recommend to any Physics teacher of the world for this site. Thank you for maintaining the...

This site is well organized and thorough. It gives great insight into the content and how connections can be made for students. I have been using it to help me prepare for the 2016 assessment, and have used resources for each content area and laboratories...

InThinking site for IB physics is a wonderful resource to learn and teach IB physics effectively. I have been trained mostly through Chris Hampers' ideas and innovations on this site. I couldn't have made it without this resource. Thank you for making...

How to teach physics

Is it all about passing exams? I don't think so but at the same time I want my students to do well in them. There is a famous saying about fishing. more

    Gravitational Potential
    Oh I see, the gradient I think. So if you were to look at a potential hill the strongest field is the steepest bit.

    I agree for Ohm;s law, but what about in the case of g? Is it the ratio of V/r (like you would get from taking "g" out of Fg =GMm/r^2) or the gradient ∆V/∆r?

    Amazing! A living and learning paradise!

    Hi Cora; As far as I know R is still the ratio not the gradient.

    Gravitational Potential
    When graphing V versus r, we get the gravitational field strength, g since it is in the data book as g=-∆V/∆r . Is this kind of like the debate of Ohm's law whether it is the ratio given by the point on the line versus the gradient of...

    Kinetic and potential energy
    If you go to the question bank you can make your own tests and print them in a neater form.

    yes they only have access to the bits you open to them.

    A bad example
    Hi Chris, I am trialling my students working independently on a chapter and working on their IA's at the same time, so I have given them access to some parts of the website. They are enthusiastic about the idea! However, could it be that I...

    Is there a way of printing this test without the answers being displayed? Makes it very difficult to give this to students. Thanks.

    Factors affecting R (paper)
    nope, wouldn't work with onesided paper

    Factors affecting R (paper)
    A question on changing the cross-section area. The method says "Change the Cross sectional area by adding a second piece of paper on top of the first ." But conducting papers are one-sided. Will this work?

    Hi Sandra; You can only give feedback on one draft however I would advise using something like google classroom so you can monitor progress all along.
