Resources for the classroom
Take a look at a wide variety of IOP teaching resources for the classroom below.
- Supporting the Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) in physics
These resources are designed to help support the delivery of level 3 Extended Projects in physics in schools and colleges, whether through investigation or research-based
- Supporting A-level practical requirements
The most notable changes to the new A-level physics are in the ways in which practical work will be assessed and reported. And thus the ways in which it is employed during the course
- Teaching Exoplanet Physics
Five curriculum-linked practical activities for 11- to 14-year-olds
- Teaching Astronomy and Space
This resource supports the teaching of astronomy and space to 11- to 16-year-olds
- Teaching Medical Physics
These resources are designed for teaching GCSE and standard grade science using examples from medical physics
- Teaching Radioactivity
These resources support the teaching of radioactivity, with advice on using radioactive sources
- Physics in Concert
An activity for 13- to 14-year-olds to encourage more students, particularly girls, to consider careers related to physics
- Voicebox: the physics and evolution of speech
A set of practical activities that encourage students to understand human speech at a basic level
Four interactive games are now available to use in your teaching of energy and space to 13- to 16-year-olds
- Marvin and Milo
Here you can browse the entire back catalogue of Marvin and Milo physics activities. You can also now search the Marvin and Milo collection by physics terms.
- Are You a Good Scientist?
The Are You a Good Scientist pack contains a poster and a set of questions which highlight safe and ethical approaches to scientific work. This can be particularly useful for courses where there is a focus on understanding the processes of science.
- Physics Education
Physics Education is a bi-monthly journal containing articles on the teaching of physics, news, teaching tips and reviews of textbooks and software. To subscribe your school to this journal, join the Institute’s Schools and colleges Affiliation Scheme.
- Physics World
Physics World is a leading physics magazine which will help to keep you in touch with developments in physics, as well as providing inspiration for your students. To subscribe your school to this journal, join the Institute’s Schools and colleges Affiliation Scheme.
