I had a thread on here ( I don't understand physics ) and completely used it as a rant. Well since then I've taken precautions on losing temper and understanding physics. Forging to play on my strengths, I combined my interest in learning about great white sharks and using physics to make it clear. I've had success but now my main problem is understanding physics questions. The ambiguity of the question really throws me off from picturing what's going on and what values am I given. What can I do to get over this last hump ? Read more often because if it's my lack of understanding of what the question says then maybe I can solve the question? How do you approach these verbose sentences? This is high school physics and I talked to a teacher who is extremely proficient in higher maths and he told me most of physics is calculus based and I am only in pre calculus. But the problem is that most of my class is in algebra 2 and they seem to understand most of it better than I do. It also doesn't help that they form "Cliques" and so that throws out "getting classmate help" out the window. And so I ask, what can I do in this situation? Any help is gladly appriciated.
