Course Concept

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Physics Standard Level (SL) course aims to provide students with a foundational understanding of physics concepts, principles, and applications. This course is suitable for students who have an interest in physics and want to develop a basic understanding of the subject without pursuing an in-depth study or a career in a physics-related field.

The IB Physics SL curriculum covers a wide range of topics, including mechanics, thermal physics, waves and oscillations, electricity and magnetism, and atomic and nuclear physics. Students will learn about the fundamental principles that govern the behavior of matter and energy.

  • Develop a foundational understanding of physics concepts and principles: The course aims to provide students with a solid understanding of fundamental physics principles, including mechanics, thermodynamics, waves, and electricity. Students will learn the language of physics and develop a conceptual framework for understanding the behavior of matter and energy.
  • Foster scientific inquiry and critical thinking skills: Students will engage in scientific inquiry and develop their ability to think critically and analyze physical phenomena. They will learn to evaluate scientific information, draw conclusions based on evidence, and apply physics principles to solve problems. The course aims to develop students' ability to think scientifically and engage in evidence-based reasoning.
  • Cultivate laboratory and experimental skills: Practical work is an essential component of IB Physics SL. Students will engage in laboratory activities to develop skills in experimental design, data collection, and analysis. They will learn techniques and methodologies used in physics research and gain hands-on experience in conducting experiments.
  • Enhance communication and presentation skills: Students will develop effective communication skills, both written and oral, to express physical ideas and findings. They will learn how to write scientific reports, analyze and interpret data, and present their findings to an audience. The course aims to enhance students' ability to communicate scientific information clearly and coherently.
  • Develop an awareness of the applications of physics: Students will explore the practical applications of physics in everyday life, technology, and global challenges. They will understand the impact of physical principles on society and the environment and develop an appreciation for the role of physics in addressing global issues such as energy, sustainability, and technology advancement.
  • Prepare students for further study and careers in physics-related fields: The IB Physics SL course aims to provide a foundation for students pursuing higher education or careers in physics, engineering, astronomy, and related disciplines. It prepares students for university-level study and nurtures a passion for lifelong learning in the field of physics.

Frequently Asked Questions

Read some of the most commonly asked questions by parents and students
  • Who are the AP Guru tutors?
    expand_more

    We have hand-selected a small group of highly qualified tutors who have mastery over teaching and helping students in the programs they teach. Our tutors also need to have significant previous teaching experience and be very gifted, dynamic teachers.

    We conduct our programs online.

    Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    expand_more

    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • When is the best time to get started?
    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • Do test prep courses work?
    expand_more

    Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

  • Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
