Please note: this edition is valid only for the Part IB academic year 2018-19.

Background

This is the on-line version of the Part IB Computational Projects Manual for the academic year 2018-19.

It is available in Portable Document Format (PDF): most computers will be able to read this format automatically, but if not then you should download, say, Adobe Reader.

Misprints that are discovered in the manual will be announced via CATAM News. The on-line version will be corrected, and so should be up to date. However, it should always be read in conjunction with CATAM News.

Note that some of the projects require data files, which can be found here.
