Welcome to the online home of
Skyline High School's International Baccalaureate Physics!
The information and documents on this site are intended for the students in IB Physics 1 and IB Physics 2 at Skyline High School. If you are a current student, and you would like to see something on the site that I have forgotten, please let me know!
The content of the course syllabus is created by the International Baccalaureate Organization. This school year (2014-15), Skyline is experiencing an overlap of two curricula. 1st year students will be following the new curriculum, which has its first exam in 2016. 2nd year students will be following the older curriculum. The primary differences between the two curricula are the following: the topics covered for the "Option" topic; the structure of the internal assessment requirement, and minor changes in some of the topics, including both content of the topics and names of the topics.
What is Physics, you ask?
Physics is the study of how our world and our universe work. It is the study of the interactions between particles of matter and the energy transformations during or because of those interactions. Physics is the building block for all other natural sciences! It is everywhere in the world around you--you cannot avoid physics. This class will hopefully open your eyes to the beauty of the physics you experience in your life daily! Physics ROCKS!!
