In accordance with the international trend, the new round of curriculum reform of basic education in China vigorously advocates inquiry teaching. Experiment plays an important role in physics. However, experiments have not been paid much attention in the past, so it is necessary to analyze how to carry out inquiry experiment teaching and investigate the current implementation status of inquiry-based experiment teaching. In this paper, literature research and questionnaire survey are conducted to investigate the students from the aspects of implementation conditions, implementation intention, implementation process and implementation effect of the inquiry physics experiment teaching. The results show that the present situation of physical inquiry experiment teaching is not optimistic. Although the overwhelming majority of students have positive intention to carry out the physical inquiry experiment, there are many problems in the implementation condition, implementation process and implementation effect of the physical inquiry experiment teaching. And it is in some degree trapped in the practical dilemma of formalism, which needs further improvement and perfection. Therefore, in order to promote the further optimization of exploratory experimental teaching, it is firstly suggested to provide multiparty support for the effective implementation of exploratory experiment teaching. Then, the operational examination is considered to be added in high-interest examinations. Finally, the physics teachers need to improve their professional quality.
