So here is a problem (more of a dilemma) I encountered in my mandatory physics class [(highschool level) i say mandatory since I take an other optional calculus based one], many students are often mislead for example in kinematics the equations are very clunkily derived and when you finish attending a rather beautiful combinatorics class where everything is so magnificently shown and you then have to go to a physics class where everything is dumbed down, this causes many who have a passion for math, and naturally try to delve in what i would consider the more elegant side of applied maths, to loss all interest in physics.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So although i try to show my friends, who love math but despise physics, the beauty of physics if you don't hinder yourself with abstaining from using any calculus, but sadly most people in high school never get the privilege of getting calculus courses in high school, so by extension they cannot fully understand the beauty of physics... but there is an alternative!!!

The internet.

Although resources like khan academy are great for calculus, but not physics! I personally thought (while in middle school) that khan academy could give me a free path through physics till uni, and while for math it is amazing, not for physics, mainly cause while going through the topics he sometimes slips calculus in for example in electrical fields but then again he says nothing of the sort for conservation of momentum...

But never fear! there are hundreds of others sites and books that not only help for physics, but also calculus (since i hated khan academy for introduction calculus), but where are those sites? and where are those people in high school that tell you where those books and sites are? where are the study groups that help you with the complicated problems? They are all in Universities! That is exactly my point, why not just start one here?
