Hello, My name is David and I'm particularly new to this forum. As of now the first grading period of my first semester is going to end, but I'm hit with a bad start on my physics grade. I'm taking Physics AP this year (I'm a junior now), and have never taken any other class before. I guess this is a disadvantage for me since many other students in my class have taken physics before already. Learning physics became extremely hard on me these past weeks I've taken it. Although we're learning the basics, I do not understand the material at all. I feel that the blame goes on the teacher for only teaching the mere basics of the lesson, but also the blame goes on me for not reading extensively enough. I guess you can say that I'm more of a visual and audible learner, but I have not had as much trouble learning to read now than in the past. I'm already stumped with a chance of getting a D or C in my class...I do poorly on my test and quizzes and suffice with homework with a lot of help. I fear that if I keep this up, I may jeopardize my physics grade. At this moment, I don't want that to happen. So I ask you all for advice and tips on how I could get a better grade. Are there any sources that I can look at that can benefit me (I feel that my physics textbook does not provide enough information for me to understand it in truth)? Thanks for your help and for reading this.
