I'm in my second semester of my sophomore year at a community college. In my first semester, I took an Introduction to Physics class. I found it to be a little bit of a challenge, but my professor was really helpful, and with a little help, I could actually understand the material, and passed the class with an A. In my second semester, I tried to take the second part of the introduction to physics, but the classes were full, so I took a General College Physics class instead. I thought that I'd be able to handle it, but I'm having an extremely difficult time understanding the work. It's a hybrid class, so most of the work is online, and we meet in class only for labs. My professor is next to useless. He does very little actual teaching. I pretty much have to teach myself the material by reading over the chapters in the book and looking at the way the example problems are done. I may as well be trying to teach myself Chinese. Right now, I'm trying to understand a chapter on Static Equilibrium; Elasticity and Fracture. I'm pretty much just staring at some example problems, hoping that through some process of osmosis, the information will sink in. But it's not. This stuff makes no sense to me. I'm the type of learner where I need to be walked through complex material, step by step, in order to reach an understanding, I'm not able to teach this to myself. Even worse, I have a test on Friday. What should I do?
