Time for my “Tip of the Day”! It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it?
Well, one thing that I have noticed among my readers, is that many are confused as to how they should study for math and physics. These two subjects leave them desperate for help. Worry not, my friends! Math and physics aren’t necessarily that difficult, if you make an attempt to change the way you look at them. Pretend that those two are your most favorite subjects and which you find very easy, and voila! Slowly and steadily, they will become easier for you.
In the meantime, while you keep your imagination process on, also keep in mind to make notes – in math and in physics. For math, make notes regarding all important formulae. You will find a PDF on important formulae in math here.
The key is to write, write, and write.
Write and rewrite those formulae. Yes, I may sound like a first grade teacher, but that’s the key to memorizing all those formulae! Write them down, stick them on your cupboard or bulletin board, and take five to ten minutes each day to just go through them. You’ll learn them in no time! Half the problem solved! 🙂
Also, practice, practice, and practice those sums. Solve all examples, solve all chapter tests, and solve all exercises. You will then be familiar with all kinds of sums and there won’t be a single question which you won’t be able to solve. Give it a try! Do those examples first and then solve the exercise. The examples are given for a reason – they teach you the basics and all give a variety of sums which you may come across.
The same goes for physics. Write those formulae and rewrite them. Go though them once a day, whether it’s while you brush your teeth, wait for the bus, on the bus ride, during recess, etc. Take a couple minutes out from your day to revise those formulae.
Making notes during class can also help. Writing is what will get you everywhere. The brain finds it easier to store data when you write it. Writing the data helps you visualize it once again and when you look at those formulae, BAM! The data gets stored in your brain. 🙂
Thank you and keep on writing!
