Steps to Take When Struggling with your Physics Homework

So you are having trouble with completing your physics homework? There is no need to worry because if you follow these simple steps you will get it done quicker than you can say Isaac Newton!

Gather all your materials you will need for the homework.

Sometimes you might need a protractor for angle measurement, but definitely a special calculator, ruler, paper, and a pencil, no pens! When you mess up in pen you can’t erase, and correction ink will take time out of homework time. Every second counts, so to make sure everything goes efficiently have all materials necessary before you even tackle your problem.

Take a few deep breaths and relax before looking at the problem.

If you go in with a clearer head it will help with stress levels. Having a clear head and relaxed breathing will also help you get to your solution quicker since no stressful thoughts will be clouding your brain. You are already struggling with the homework, so it doesn’t make it more helpful to have a stressed outlook on it.

Read the problem carefully.

Sometimes you are in such a rush to finish the assignment that reading over a keyword is what made you think you didn’t know how to answer the problem. After you have read each problem carefully, highlight and circle the information that is important.

Write down what you already know.

If there is a part of the problem that you think you know how to do, or you have seen a teacher do it before, write it down. You don’t want to forget what you already know! It will help things run smoother if you write down everything you know that is related to the problem so that you can finish your homework quicker.

Circle or write down what is actually confusing you.

Don’t just write everything you don’t know, be specific and what down what is literally confusing you. The more fluff you take out of the problem the better.

Look up what you do not know.

Whether it is in your textbook, or not. Look up what you do not know. Do not just guess or think you know what it is. Actually look up so that you have a definitive answer. Go to a video website or informational website that will explain what part you are confused about.

Apply everything together.

Following these steps carefully will leave you with a completed physics homework assignment!
