Strategies to learn physics​ in proper way

Professor DoeurVannara, physics teacher for grade 12 at Tuol Tom Pong high school, gave some advice to Chheng Maneth, who struggles at physics.

“To learn physics, students need to know the basics of it from the lower grades,” said Vannara.

“Students have to understand the lessons and know what the lessons are.”

Furthermore, they need to know how to use formulas in the exercises. Some students try to remember the formulas but they cannot only know how to remember them – they also need to know when to use those formulas.

He said that students need to practise by doing exercises as much as possible. If students only know the lessons and formulas but never practise, it does not lead them to success in the subject.

“Beside practise, students need to know measuring in physics, because if you don’t know how to do that, the exercise you did will be incorrect,” said Vannara.

Vannara also said that the most important thing in studying physics is the math involved, because these two subjects are related; when you do exercises in physic, you need to use math.

Furthermore, Vannara said keeping good notes and asking the teacher for help is important.

“Physics requires students to put more effort in it and listen to teachers while they explain the concept. If you are unclear you need to ask. Moreover, students need to take notes in the lessons; otherwise, you won’t be good with this subject.”
