Quick Introduction
In this short introduction, I will try to highlight the main reasons that make most students struggle with Physics. They cannot improve their grades if they don't know WHY they have difficulties with this subject.
Some general rules of the correct attitude in a typical classroom, together with the use of new technologies, will be described, in order to make students understand how they could have a more effective time spent in a class of Physics.
Most of the students have not realized the mistakes they used to do when they are involved in studies of Physics. They use to study in a rather incorrect way and they experience a negative outcome. This lecture will explain which are these typical mistakes and how could someone study in a more effective way.
Formulas are an important part of everyday teaching and studying. The problem is that students often remember a formula but they don't know HOW to use it, especially in cases of multiple formulas connected with the same Physical quantity. They will find answers to this problem in this lecture.
Drawing sketches in Physics seems to be a tricky situation for a lot of students. Some specific methods and small secrets are described in this video.
Diagrams are very useful ''tools'' in Physics, which help us describe laws and understand Mathematical connections between Physical quantities. The correct use of diagrams is very important and this is the subject of this lecture.
In this presentation, you will recall all the necessary parts which have to do with vectors. As you may know, Physical quantities are both scalar and vectors. Velocity, force, momentum, torque and many more are vectors. Let's watch this video after this you will be able to use vectors much more effectively when you solve a Physics problem
The subject of this video is to highlight the significant role of functions in Physics. Talking about functions, I will provide the most important types of them showing their use via typical examples. You have to focus on the relationship between two Physical quantities which are connected as variables of a certain function and understand the deeper meaning of mathematical functions in terms of physical phenomena.
Physics has to do both with microcosm and macrocosm. That's why we need a way to describe very large and very small quantities. The power of ten and conversions of units can help you know how to apply them in the correct way.
Trigonometry is involved in many fields of Physics. Oscillations, waves, and optics are the most common. Deep and essential knowledge of trigonometric functions and equations is very important and in this video, I am trying to help you go through this part of Math step by step.
Equations are the most powerful ''weapons'' we can use when we try to solve Physics problems. Most students are really afraid to even of hearing about equations. Complex systems are sometimes a little tricky to be solved and need patience and a lot of practice.
Logarithms and exponentials are related to some specific phenomena like radioactive decay, damped oscillations, RC and RL circuits and many more. In this lecture, I try to describe the most important part of them.
The high-level study of Physics is almost impossible without using derivatives and integrals. Maybe they are the most valuable tools a Physicist may use in everyday teaching. Rates of change, areas, moments of inertia and many more are typical examples of applied derivatives and integrals. Some representative examples are used in this video and I am sure that they will help you understand the connection between a math tool like derivative and its physical meaning.

In this class, I will teach you the method to overcome any kind of difficulties you may face during your studies in Physics of all levels.
