                    PHYSICS SIMPLIFIED!

WHY DOES PHYSICS APPEAR HARD TO LEARN?

Reasons:

1)      Students should not have followed concepts and techniques during teaching in a class in high school or lecture in the university level.

2)      Follow up would have not have been proceeded systematically from the beginning.

3)      Proper unit conversions would not have been applied to solve problems.

4)      Formulas and given data would not have been correlated properly .

5)      Systematic free-body diagrams for a given problem like vector representation, path of light rays etc would not have been drawn for related problems.

REMEDY

1)      Convert the laws into equations or formulas.

2)      Practice the problems using equations or formulas drawing free-body diagram.

3)      Since all topics are interrelated from the beginning, the beginning concept should never be lost.

4)      In case of necessity,have help with an experienced expert tutor for perfect learning to do homework, prepare for quiz/exam.

ANALYSIS

During my observations in tutoring, students find it difficult to correlate the given data with standard equations or formulas.

They get confused to draw free-body diagrams like vector directions, path of light rays etc.

Sometimes complicated calculations using scientific or graphing calculator have been done by applying wrong order of operations.

SOME STANDARD TEXTBOOKS IN PHYSICS
