Know what students know, teach what students need

Grounded in physics education research, FlipItPhysics is a complete course solution for the calculus–based and algebra–based physics courses that redefines the interaction between students, instructors, and course content—inside and outside of lecture. With FlipItPhysics, students are better prepared and instructors can access powerful data to understand their students' strengths and weaknesses.

Prelectures that get your students learning before class even begins

Animated, narrated Prelectures introduce and overview core physics topics, laying the groundwork for conceptual understanding before students ever set foot in class. Each Prelecture activity is about 15 minutes long, and contains embedded questions that help students check their understanding along the way.

Bridge Questions to guide students and inform instructors

Our multifaceted, formative Bridge Questions capstone the Prelecture experience. These multiple-choice and free-response questions overview the content covered during the Prelecture, providing a way for students to communicate their grasp of the material to their instructor. Instructors can use this data to pinpoint student misconceptions from a global perspective, and tailor class time to help address students' needs.

An enhanced classroom experience

With FlipItPhysics, classroom time is still the focus of the course. FlipItPhysics Prelectures provide an overview of core concepts. Bridge Questions connect the Prelecture activity to the classroom experience, providing instructors with valuable insight into student understanding. With a better-prepared student audience, instructors can devote time to topics needing further explanation, or they can build on the knowledge students acquire before coming to class. FlipItPhysics easily handles clicker integration, providing the opportunity to add an element of peer instruction to the course.

Instructor resources to power your teaching experience

FlipItPhysics offers a variety of support materials for instructors. Our Enhanced Lecture Slides with Integrated Bridge Questions provide a seamless way to connect the Prelecture experience to time spent in the classroom by easily incorporating assessment data.

Homework that doesn’t feel like work

FlipItPhysics offers a carefully designed online homework engine that provides a space for students to put into practice what they learned during their PreLecture and classroom experience. Standard Exercises and Interactive Examples provide effective models and aid in the development of students' problem-solving skills.

Customize your course and assess the needs of your students at every turn

No two courses are taught the same way. That's why every component of FlipItPhysics is fully customizable. Instructors can add, delete, hide, or move content around with ease, creating a course tailored to their needs. Moreover, the uniqe reporting capabilities in FlipItPhysics allow instructors to see how students are interacting with content at every step.

Grounded in research

The FlipItPhysics approach is grounded in physics education research and principles of cognitive psychology. The system was developed over ten years at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and tested by thousands of students and instructors at dozens of institutions across North America.

What's more, FlipItPhysics works. Supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, our research demonstrates that students learn more when using FlipItPhysics, and have a more positive outlook on their learning experience.
