IB Correlations for Physics

The International Baccalaureate program has a complete set of objectives for an IB Physics class at the standard level (SL) and the higher level (HL).

As outlined in the Physics syllabus in the IB Diploma Programme guide, these objectives are arranged according to series of 14 topics, each with a number of subtopics.

In the table below, we have correlated the topics and subtopics with the experiments that are contained in various Vernier lab books. In addition, we have listed the various Vernier experiments that correlate with options A−J in the IB Guide for Physics.
