Physics Teacher | Khan Academy Talent Hunt Finalist for Physics (2017)
My love for physics and teaching has been lifelong. Here are my 8 suggestions on how you can get good at the subject-
1. You will need to make a consistent effort.
2. Visualize Physics- Making mental pictures of concepts as you study and imagining the possibilities can really speed up the understanding of it. E.g. if you are reading static and dynamic friction, imagine what is happening to a block placed on an inclined plane as the incline is increasing.
3. Try to absorb the contents of a tutorial in small chunks. Pause and ponder over what you read.
4. Understand the derivation of important equations - Often the derivation itself gives great clarity around a topic
5. Learn to deconstruct a numerical problem. Making neat diagrams and putting all the available information around it can accelerate you towards the answers
6. Be disciplined about not "rushing through" when solving a numerical problem. In other words, do not jump steps while doing a problem.
7. Get the basic understanding of math, particularly integral and differential calculus, in place. It will be required for solving numerical problems
8. Revisit the chapter after you have completed numerical. You'll find your understanding of the topic improve several notches
Most importantly, be patient, persist and practice!
