GCSE Physics Drills (question generators)

Dear Physics Teachers,

These resource will help your students master GCSE Physics subject knowledge and skills. This is a complete set of simulations and worksheet generators. Using this resource, you will save yourself time making as many worksheets as your heart desires.

How often have you had to tell your students that they need more practice at a particular skill or to acquire some particular knowledge in physics? One day, a student asked me a reasonable question: “where can I get additional questions to practise?” From that simple question spawned my idea to create a series of ‘drill spreadsheets’. These worksheet generators can be used be teachers or students to generate thousands upon thousands of unique worksheets. Most of the sheets can be customised for differentiation quickly by toggling a few options.

I wish someone had invented and provided this resource when I started teaching. You do not need to wish, here it is. As I create new drill sheets I’ll add them here, so you will always be able to come back and get the latest sheets.

The resources all work with MS Excel and other spreadsheet applications. None of them use VBA or other scripting tools, so they may also work on Macs, Android phones and iPhones, amongst other platforms.

When using MS Excel in Windows, press F9 to recalculate formulas and generate new questions. When using MS Excel on a Mac, press Cmd + =. On other packages, the way to recalculate formulas may vary.
