Winners don't do different things...

  1. 1. Winners don’t do different things; they do things differently… - Stephen Covey
  2. 2. Don’t forget, you are in a race! <ul><li>In a race, there are always winners and losers. </li></ul><ul><li>Your competitors are your classmates and all those who are sitting for the GCE A level exams all over Singapore. </li></ul><ul><li>Some will be big winners but unfortunately some will be left behind. </li></ul><ul><li>How do you emerge a winner? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Start with an appreciation of how things work. <ul><li>Pay attention to the laws of physics. </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the definitions and meaning of terms used in the context of that topic. </li></ul><ul><li>Use visual effects such as Java applets, videos and demos to create a mental picture. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Have an eye for details and critically process information given. <ul><li>Read carefully and critically process information as you read. </li></ul><ul><li>Underline important details so that you do not forget. </li></ul><ul><li>Pay attention to units, prefixes, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>When reading graphs, pay attention to axes used. </li></ul><ul><li>… many more </li></ul>
  5. 5. Don’t memorize unless you have understood . <ul><li>Anything that don’t make sense is nonsense. </li></ul><ul><li>The brain rejects it very fast. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If you’re Chinese, try sitting in a Tamil language class…(and vice versa) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Your brain shuts off in just less than 5 min if you do not comprehend. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Go slow when you are learning. You will gather speed when you begin to understand. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember, don’t memorize nonsense! </li></ul>
  6. 6. Need for specific strategies ! <ul><li>When answering qualitative questions, always link one physical quantity to another physical quantity in your write up. </li></ul><ul><li>Use specific law of physics or definitions to support your argument. </li></ul><ul><li>Questions that relate to graphs, you must always state the feature of the graph and its relationship to the physical quantity. </li></ul><ul><li>… many more </li></ul>
  7. 7. Need to build good habits. <ul><li>Habits last you a life time. You build a habit, you build a destiny. </li></ul><ul><li>Habits take time to develop, so begin your training at an early stage. </li></ul><ul><li>When you develop good habits, you tend to be more efficient in your work! </li></ul>
  8. 8. Winners in life… <ul><li>Good physics is good thinking…the ability to gather information, process information and make good use of the information. </li></ul><ul><li>Many professions require people of such traits… </li></ul><ul><li>Do well in this subject…you can be a winner in life as well! </li></ul>
