Getting started

Welcome to the InThinking Physics site!

New to IB?

New to teaching physics?

Or new to the ThinkIB resources?

In this section we'll help you to get started, covering everything from the need-to-know aspects of the IB Diploma to great teaching and learning. We also provide 'How To' tutorial pages to help you get the most out of this (pretty vast!) site.

Existing subscribers might also find this section helpful for a quick refresher of all of the resources and tools on offer. Each week we'll publish a new instruction video of about 1 minute to help you to make the most of your subscription.
