  1. Mitch here - it's been a while since I last posted, but in the past few years I've been teaching, becoming a daddy to two little girls, and I've been enjoying life as a Canadian in Denmark. You might like to know that I just made all of the theory videos from my online revision course available to you - for free. Hope they can be of help to you - I certainly had fun recording them. https://studynova.com/lecture/physics/ I went through every past exam question (starting with May 2016 of course) and kept track of what subtopics are showing up most often on Paper 1, Paper 2 and 3. For e
  2. I'm Mitch, and you might know me from my hundreds of Math SL videos on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/CampbellMitch/playlists I did an insanely detailed analysis of every single IB Math SL exam question, looking at what comes up most often, what's most difficult, etc. I'm happy to share the results of this with you. I'm doing a third instalment of my free office hours - here are the details: Wednesday, Feb 17th, 2016 Time: 3pm CET (so it's 3pm in Denmark). Sign up here: https://studynova.com/office-hours-february-2/ It was so much fun to do the last two office hours, I'm happy
  3. After the first Office Hours was such a big hit last week, I decided to do another one! I'm offering free 'Office Hours' on Feb 9th. There, you can meet with me and we'll go through Topic 3: Trigonometry. I'll be answering students' questions, and I'll show you some tricks to get ready for your exams, and I'll show you how to solve IB exam questions. So, if you like dumb jokes and want to nerd it out, join me! Interested? Just sign up for it here: https://studynova.com/office-hours-february/ Cheers, Mitch
  4. Just ask away if it's an IA question. You can ask here on the forum, or better yet, join us for the next office hour and I can see if I can answer your question(s). IAs can be pretty daunting, especially since you only get one chance at it. The main thing I can suggest is really look carefully at the criteria for marking it. The teachers and moderators have to look at the definitions in the criteria and follow those exactly. So it ends up being like a check list for you - look at the descriptions for the different categories, then look at what you did. Does it fit? Cheers, Mitch
  5. I'm so glad you like the idea - the first session was so much fun - we had some students from the US and from Australia and Germany this time around. No, the times won't always be the same. I'm trying to gauge what works best for me and for other students. For example, the next one (Trigonometry) is on Feb 9th, at a different time. Hopefully that works a bit better for you? -Mitch
  6. Hi there! I'm Mitch, and I'm an IB math and physics teacher. I've made literally hundreds of IB math and physics videos on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/CampbellMitch/playlists I'm doing something that you might find interesting, and it's just for IB Math SL at the moment: On Jan 26th, I'm offering free 'office hours'. You can show up online and be part of the class. I'll be answering students' questions, and I'll show you some tricks to get ready for your exams, and I'll show you how to solve IB exam questions. I think it sounds like a fun idea - so if you like dumb jokes and want
  7. It really does depend on the textbook you're using (for example, is it the 'Haese Harris one, or Oxford University Press or Ibid press, etc?). Some of the textbooks put all the information out there and go into lots of detail on the theory. I think that's important. But like you wrote, knowing the theory from the textbook and doing the examples is useful, but it's a whole other skill to do the exams. They are an entirely different skill set and so there can be a big jump in level of difficulty. The good news? If you get your hands on as many exams as possible (Look at May 2014, Nov 2014,
  8. You can solve it by using a graphing calculator, of course. First step is to put in the equation (don't know what kind of calculator you're using, so if you give that, I can help you more - for example, is it a TI-84? TI-nSpire?, ....) Once you put in the equation in the calculator, you'll need to make sure you are looking at the correct window. So make sure your x values go from -4 to 4. If you set your y value to go from -2 to 2, you'll see the entire graph. ***Make sure you change your mode to 'Radians'. You'll really need that. Hopefully that helps! From there, you can look at wher
  9. I'm so glad for the feedback so far. The plan is to make a course like this for Physics SL/HL, as well as Math HL. Only there's just one me, and I need to take the time to do it right. Next up will be Math Studies and Physics SL/HL. Math HL will likely have to wait until next year Cheers, Mitch
  10. I made a gigantic amount of videos (that cover the new syllabus) here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CampbellMitch/playlists?shelf_id=3&view=1&sort=dd I have topics 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 (calculus). I hope that helps! Cheers, Mitch
  11. Greetings, lovely students! I'm Mitch, and I'm an IB math and physics teacher (and examiner and curriculum developer). I posted lots of resources in the past - I wanted to let you know that if you have your Math SL exam this November - gulp - that's next week - then I have something for you! I've been making an online revision course to get students ready for the exams, and you can see the entire Algebra topic is free. http://studynova.com/lecture/math-sl/algebra/ I went through every past exam and did a crazy detailed analysis of every question, how tough they are, what topics show up m
  12. Hi there. Many of you know me as that one teacher who likes to make IB math and physics videos on youtube. I wanted to let you know that I have a set of notes that I made for my own students that should be relevant to you, if you have your IB Physics SL or HL exams this November (in just a few weeks!) The notes cover the OLD syllabus (if you have exams this coming May 2016, you can of course benefit, but it's covering things in a different order, there's no particle physics in the core, they have 2 options, etc etc). I hope you can find this helpful! The notes cover Physics SL and HL, (i
  13. Thanks for the fantastic comments! If you like the videos, you're welcome to tell others about the resource - my goal is to help as many students as possible! Cheers, Mitch
  14. Thank you for the lovely comments. I'm so happy you were able to use the videos! I hope you kicked complete ass on your exams I'm going to keep making new videos in the next few months, especially for the new syllabus. Things like particle physics are coming next, I think. Cheers, Mitch
  15. And so happy that you liked them! I'm always making more. I've got a new series of funnier (hopefully) ones on the way, showing physics in action. Cheers, Mitch
