Promoting Physics Learning And Teaching Opportunities (PPLATO)

PPLATO is a Consortium project led by the University of Reading with Brunel University Open University University of Newcastle upon Tyne University of Plymouth and University of Salford. It addresses two key issues facing the physics HE community - teaching mathematics to physics undergraduates and widening participation in undergraduate physics. PPLATO will survey and evaluate current practice in these areas developing and disseminating an extensive range of new resources and good practice building on previous successful developments and experiences. These will be free or at nominal cost to the sector. Project outcomes are expected to be improved student competence in mathematics and physics and wider participation and improved retention in undergraduate physics
