Learning by Questions for physics

Physics teachers are taking on the most commendable quest every day. They help young minds understand big ideas about the universe they live in.

For taking this on this mission, we offer a platform that tackles some of the biggest challenges they face in the classroom.

Why physics teachers love LbQ

Teaching maths and physics

The thing about physics is, it's not just the big, abstract ideas you've got to get your head around. You've got to have some maths props too.

LbQ embraces the maths needed for teaching physics. We drip-feed these skills throughout our resources to ensure that, while it's not the focus, pupils get what they need to excel in the subject.

Plus, you have access to our maths Question Sets to go back to basics if you need to.

Tackling the toughest subject

From energy to electricity, to electromagnetism, to the ENTIRE UNIVERSE: there's just a tad to get though in the physics classroom.

Learning by Questions covers all the topics required by the National Curriculum, including some assessment-based resources as the icing on top of the edtech cake.

Honing all the skills needed

Physicists wear many hats. They're mathematicians, data analysts, problem solvers, writers, theorists, and investigators all in one.

LbQ not only covers all the content needed for secondary physics, the resources also help students exercise all the skills needed to smash the subject.

Supporting your 'reluctant' physicists

Truth bomb incoming: some kids don't like physics. But even if a student doesn't go on to become the next Curie or Hawking, they will still benefit from the skills and knowledge they get from your classroom.

LbQ eases some of the frustration of misconceptions in the physics classroom by providing helpful and personalised feedback for every answer. A student gets it wrong, they're shown how to get it right. And the Curies and Hawkings get pushed because they're not waiting around for others to catch up.

Getting to grips with your non-specialist subject

Non-specialists teaching physics? No problem.

However your school arranges the teaching of science, LbQ not only helps to teach the subject through the teacher-made resources, but we've also arranged them into schemes for ease of planning.

Communicating the abstract

There's a lot in physics that's complex to explain. Electromagnetism, anyone? Quite often, struggles in physics come from trying to teach abstract concepts. Physics is full of them!

LbQ breaks down abstract concepts into smaller, more manageable ideas and provides illustrations to help students through. Students also get personalised feedback to each answer they give, helping to solidify those tough-to-grasp concepts.
