Introduction to the site
We hope that you will find the Getting started section useful if you are new to the IB, physics teaching or these resources. Returning subscribers are also advised to check out this area to make sure that you are using the full functionality of the site.
At the heart of the site are the SL Core, Additional HL and Options topic sections, perfect for constructing medium term unit planners, day to day lesson planning and setting independent work for students. They are organised in this order:
- Topic title
- Unit planner
- Sub-topic teacher information
- Problem-based learning and student activities
- Practical work (if required)
- Multiple choice questions
- Optional practical work
The IB Core section might not be a first priority, but should form the basis of everything we do. It's worth a visit if you are considering being an Extended Essay supervisor or if you are running the Group 4 project. You can also revise the Learner Profile, Theory of Knowledge and Community Activity Service pages to convince your IB coordinator that you're teaching the IB Diploma, not just physics.

The core contains pretty much the basic topics but maybe not enough if you want to study physics or a related subject at university, the additional HL content adds depth to waves, fields, electricity,...
The organisation of the options in the last syllabus was rather complicated, some were HL only some were SL only but also part of AHL and some were combined. The eye and sight was the only topic that...
This section contains information and resources relating to the IA as it will be implemented from 2014. Just to make this clear, that means students who begin the IB in August 2014 will be doing this...

The IB course can be represented by a hexagon. the hexagon is divided into 6 sections each representing one of the 6 diploma subjects. These 6 sections enclose the core of extended essay, theory of knowledge...
