It is very common, students who were good in science at middle school level face difficulties in Physics when they are at high school. Many find Physics class a boring one and make various excuses to avoid the class. If you are also among those who find this subject, which is filled with facts and reasoning, boring must read this article seriously.
Physics is neither a boring or a difficult subject. Rather, it is a very interesting subject that explains to you the facts and reasons behind everything exist in the universe. The subject teaches you to think and develops your problem-solving skills. Don’t get afraid of Physics just bring some changes in your approach towards the subject and make it the most interesting one.
Given below some important tips to make Physics an interesting subject:
- Adopt a conceptual approach:
Since physics is a conceptual subject, therefore, students should adopt a conceptual approach to learn about it. This means it is more important to understand the general consequences of any theory or law in comparison to knowing its application in any particular situation. For instance, giving more focus on learning the derivations compared to the equations. So that you will never forget the equations and the concepts. Get all of your doubts clear before proceeding for the next chapter, otherwise, you will not be able to gain in-depth knowledge in the future.
- Not just study to pass the exams:
Don’t just mug up and write your answers in the exams. Try to understand each and every fact behind each theory and law. Study the subject with an intention of knowing the behavior of nature, it will become an interesting subject automatically. For instance, when you are learning about fluid dynamics, try to explain the motion of water in any simple condition that you can imagine. You might not be successful. Even if you are successful, try to discuss it with your teachers or class mates to eliminate your misconception and develop your interest.
- Gain enough proficiency in Mathematics
There is a direct relationship between Physics and Mathematics. Mathematics provide useful tools to scientists, enabling them to understand the great universe. It involves lots of mathematical formulas, thus, a strong foundation in Mathematics can help you to solve various phenomenon of Physics. It has been proved from the Sir Isaac Newton’s experiment where he used a tool to analyze the motion of an object which later on developed into one of the major branches of mathematics- the calculus.
- Increase your outer knowledge
Your text books, college manuals, or your teachers’ note cannot provide you in-depth knowledge on the subject. Read additional books to understand advanced physics in details. “Feynman’s lectures in physics” is a good study material to learn advanced physics. Don’t just stick to your school and college syllabus.
- Take interest in activities and project works
At the end of each chapter, there are some DIY activities. Don’t overlook them, try out all the activities it will help you to understand clearly that you have learned in the whole chapter. It will also increase your creativity.
- Choose your guide wisely
Learning Physics can become more interesting experience if there is someone to guide you properly. Your teacher should be able to grow your inquisitiveness and clear all of your doubts. Before selecting your guide, make sure that the teacher should have in-depth knowledge on various topics of Physics. And the most important thing is the teacher must have expertise in concept clearing technique and must have the enthusiasm of teaching.
Those who are studying Physics are fortunate enough. There are several options available for them to proceed forward in their future. Those who are studying engineering can only do engineering, while those who study Physics can also do engineering. So, take interest in the subject and get yourself prepared to explore the mysterious universe.
