With the trial examination period for 2017 quickly approaching it is important to talk about the best way to study Physics and Mathematics. The answer is to do questions. Questions may be from past exam papers or summary books. At this stage in schools new work should have been completed with a path of revision left towards the HSC. Write detailed answers to your questions. In Physics use the words clearly and make sure you answer the question that is asked. In Mathematics do not jump too many steps at once in your working as this is a very common source of error. Most importantly do not attempt at this stage to summarise or write out the text-book. This just takes up time and does not engage your brain to promote thinking and understanding.
Physics and Mathematics
What are the concepts in Physics and Mathematics that students find difficult? In this blog I will post tutorial points that I hope will stimulate thinking and so broaden the knowledge and understanding of students allowing them to write thorough examination responses. Tutorial notes, from a student's point of view, will be posted on the HSC, IB and university level topics of Relativity, Electromagnetism, Mechanics, Quantum Physics and Calculus. The overall purpose of these pages is to encourage and promote learning in Physics and Mathematics and so open new horizons in learning.
