Introduction of IB Physics Course Book: 2014 Edition: Oxford IB Diploma Program 1st Edition book:
Physics is one of the earliest academic disciplines known – if you include observational astronomy, possibly the oldest. In physics we analyse the natural world to develop the best understanding we can of how the universe and its constituent parts interrelate. Our aim as physicists is to develop models that correspond to what is observed in the laboratory and beyond. These models come in many forms: some may be quantitative and based on mathematics; some may be qualitative and give a verbal description of the world around us. But, whatever form the models take, physicists must all agree on their validity before they can be accepted as part of our physical description of the universe.
Models used by physicists are linked by a coherent set of principles known as concepts. These are overarching ideas that link the development of the subject not only within a particular physical topic (for example, forces in mechanics) but also between topics (for example, the common mathematics that links radioactive decay and capacitor discharge). In studying physics, take every opportunity to understand a new concept when you meet it. When the concept occurs elsewhere your prior knowledge will make the later learning easier.
This book is designed to support your learning of physics within group 4 of the IB Diploma Programme. Like all the disciplines represented in this subject group it has a thorough basis in the facts and concepts of science, but it also draws out the nature of science. This is to give you a better understanding of what it means to be a scientist, so that you can, for example, identify shortcomings in scientifc topics presented to you in the media or elsewhere. Not everyone taking IB Physics will want to go on to be a physicist or engineer, but all citizens need to have an awareness of the importance of science in modern society.
