This fifth edition of Physics for the IB Diploma covers, in one volume, the entire new International Baccalaureate (IB) syllabus, including all the options at both Standart Level and Higher Level. It features a chapter on the role of physics in the context of the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course, along with many discussion questions for TOK.
The student-friendly design makes this comprehensive book easy to use and the accessible language ensures that the material is also suitable for students whose first language is not English.
The division of this book into chapters and sections usually follows the organisation of the syllabus. However, since the sections are reasonably independent of each other, alternative teaching sequences may be used.
Each chapter opens with a list of learning objectives that are directly related to the syllbus. The questions at the end of each chapter have been expanded and answers to those involving calculation, plus some others, have been supplied at the back of the book. Worked examples throughout the text highlight important results, laws, definitions and formulae, and provide students with the neccessary skills to solve problems.
