Introduction This sixth edition of Physics for the IB Diploma is fully updated to cover the content of the IB Physics Diploma syllabus that will be examined in the years — Both share a common core, which is covered in Topics 1—8. At HL the core is extended to include Topics 9— In addition, at both levels, students then choose one Option to complete their studies.
Each option consists of common core and additional Higher Level material. The four Options are included in the free online material that is accessible using education.
The structure of this book follows the structure of the IB Physics syllabus. Each topic in the book matches a syllabus topic, and the sections within each topic mirror the sections in the syllabus. Each section begins with learning objectives as starting and reference points. Worked examples are included in each section; understanding these examples is crucial to performing well in the exam. A large number of test yourself questions are included at the end of each section and each topic ends with examstyle questions.
The reader is strongly encouraged to do as many of these questions as possible. Numerical answers to the test yourself questions are provided at the end of the book; detailed solutions to all questions are available on the website. Some topics have additional questions online; these are indicated with the online symbol, shown here. Theory of Knowledge TOK provides a cross-curricular link between different subjects. It stimulates thought about critical thinking and how we can say we know what we claim to know.
Science is a truly international endeavour, being practised across all continents, frequently in international or even global partnerships.
Many problems that science aims to solve are international, and will require globally implemented solutions.
Throughout this book, InternationalMindedness features highlight international concerns in Physics. Nature of science is an overarching theme of the Physics course. The theme examines the processes and concepts that are central to scientific endeavour, and how science serves and connects with the wider community.
A chapter giving a general introduction to the Nature of science theme is available in the free online material. Previous page Next page. Available July Cambridge University Press Education. Published on Apr 29, Go explore.
