Superfast Physics for 14 to 16 year olds
What you'll learn
- Answer questions quickly and accurately to gain maximum marks.
- Gain the confidence answering questions to be able to enjoy the physics being learned.
- Develop study techniques that can help in other subjects. (Particularly mnemonics and memory walks.)
- Know that physics can be fun and enjoyable too!
- You will need a general understanding of the physics taught from 14-16 years old.
- A calculator is useful.
- A pen and paper to work answers out for yourself and record important details.
- You will also need a desire to get higher marks in your exams.
How easy will it be when you feel supremely confident in physics. When you know the key equations and you are able to rearrange them effortlessly. When the key points in physics are at your fingertips.
This course is designed to help enhance your study of physics learned by students 14-16 years old worldwide. It is a course about memory techniques, physics equations and empowerment through confidence and practice.
There is a lot to remember in high school physics but you should enjoy the process.
Over 40 equations that have to be rearranged in over 120 different ways.
9 different types of energy.
7 different types of visible light.
7 types of electromagnetic waves.
Converting between 7 well-used prefixes.
3 types of radiation and radioactive decay, that have 3 different effects on their parent nucleus, are detected in 3 different ways and have 3 different levels of danger depending on whether they are inside or outside of the body.
Various types of subatomic particles making up protons and neutrons.
How to construct lens diagrams.
How to answer open ended questions.
Unless you are good at remembering these things, physics is an uphill struggle. This course will teach you how to remember all of these things easily using fun memory techniques and mnemonics.
This course also contains about 800 answered questions and examples. There are over 150 fully explained video questions, many multiple choice quiz questions and extra downloadable practice questions with answers. Working through these questions will increase your confidence and hopefully inspire a love of physics.
This course will use your amazing mind to create lasting memories. You are more likely to be able to remember something if it is fun and interesting. By using these memory aids, you are creating new connections in your brain that make learning the physics equations easy.
The fun and catchy mnemonics and other memory aids in this course were created to help students remember the essential equations and key concepts at this level of physics. This course also contains techniques to help make rearranging the equations easier. Practice of these methods should improve revision skills and study techniques in physics and for other subjects as well.
This course is based on my book published under the same name that was developed from over a decade of classroom experience.
Who this course is for:
- You should be interested in learning how to remember and use physics at this level (The level that prepares you for A-levels, AP or IB)
- You should have a desire to increase your marks, attainment and general comfort in physics.
I trained as a physics teacher over 10 years ago and have spent the last decade teaching both physics and mathematics in different countries around the world. I hold degrees in physics, mathematics, software development and teaching. I am now in Canada creating new courses and tutoring full time.
Many years ago a thought occurred to me - that one of the major barriers to learning is that students are rarely taught how to remember and apply the key information being studied. People hint at it and give vague suggestions. Sometimes some students will create a study group and struggle through the issues together attempting to memorise and retain everything. This need to remember the information with clarity is very noticeable in physics as you need immediate access to the equations and the ability to work quickly during examinations.
This thought compelled me to sit down and spend over 5 years writing and re-writing my book on how to remember high school physics. This course is the culmination of that book. It is the book in online video course form.
I love physics and maths and I do not believe that it should be boring, or difficult. I hope that you will feel the same way if you use the memory techniques in my course.
