Description

The only DP Physics resource developed with the IB to accurately match the new 2014 syllabus for both SL and HL, this completely revised edition gives you unrivalled support for the new concept-based approach to learning, the Nature of science.. Understanding, applications and skills are integrated in every topic, alongside TOK links and real-world connections to truly drive independent inquiry. Assessment support straight from the IB includes practice questions and worked examples in each topic, alongside support for the Internal Assessment. Truly aligned with the IB philosophy, this Course Book gives unparalleled insight and support at every stage.

About the series
The only DP resources developed directly with the IB, the Oxford IB Course Books are the most comprehensive core resources to support learners through their study. Fully incorporating the learner profile, resources are assessed by consulting experts in international-mindedness and TOK to ensure these crucial components are deeply embedded into learning.

Reviews

`This book looks like a real find to me. It covers the new course (both SL and HL, including the options) very well, with useful references to the Nature of Science and Theory of Knowledge as required by the IB. The book captured my interest immediately I picked it up - in fact, when I first saw it I couldn't put it down! It is very easy to read, and is remarkably well illustrated. Its structure follows closely to the IB syllabus. There are lots of worked examples, lots of ideas and advice to students on practical work, a good selection of questions for student practice at the end of each topic, and advice relating to the new internal assessment procedures. I am looking forward to exploring it further.' Bill Riceman, IB Physics Teacher, The International French School of Sydney

`We were planning on ordering another publisher's resources but many of our IB teachers attended workshops and came back asking for Oxford. The quality of the text and online support package is the reason.' Ron Patrick, Head of Science, International School of Panama
