Abstract: Although a primary objective of the teacher is to effectively teach concepts and despite that the National Policy on Education emphasizes the inquiry method of teaching approach for the effective teaching of science concepts, many science teachers in Nigerian institutions employ methods which promote memory and understanding rather than rational thinking and productivity. This paper has investigated into the inquiry method of teaching approach can be used to effectively teach Modern Physic,concepts for logical reasoning and subsequent productivity. The approach sees the teacher as amongst others, a guide to effective learning. Finally the paper illustrated how the inquiry approach can be used effectively to teach 'energy level quantisation in the atom’ and ‘radioactivity as concepts in Modern Physics.
