I Figured it out!

In response to hotdog's post of March 17th:

I know exactly how you feel hotdog. My first day in Honors Physics was perhaps the most stressful hour and a half of my life, but I knew I couldn't give up on the first day. I think the reason physics is so scary is because it's different from anything else. The things I learn in physics are so far removed from any of my past or current classes it can be very intimidating. Yes, you use the same math operations you used in Algebra, but the concepts are very different from other classes. This is also the reason physics is cool. If you understand it, you understand so much about the world. You can calculate or figure out just about anything you see in everyday life. Sometimes (actually, all the time) learning physics makes my brain ache, but it's worth it. I've been in honors physics for about nine weeks and I figured out how to do well in the class...don't freak out. When you don't understand something, all you have to do is ask your teacher or look at other resources (like your text book or youtube.) Its usually not as hard as I initially think it is and when I take a deep breath and focus, I can understand it, and earn an A! Another thing that helps is to keep an open mind, think outside of the box. Physics, like I said before, is sometimes different from other classes so it might not look familiar. Don't let this scare you though, because with the right attitude and mindset, everyone can succeed in physics class!
