Physics is frequently one of the hardest subjects for students to tackle because it is a combination of two of the toughest subjects for most students: Math and Word Problems.
If you understand the math but don't do well in word problems then you will have trouble. And if you understand the word problem but have no idea where to begin with the math, again, you will not do well.
The Ultimate Physics 2 Tutor, Volume is a focuses on Thermodynamics and begins at the very beginning assuming the student has never been exposed to this material. The course then proceeds to introduce new topics in an easy-to-understand fashion. The course is a 3 DVD series, 10 full hours in duration, and contains 11 chapters of material so you can be assured that all of the core topics are covered in detail. What sets this DVD apart from the rest is that the concepts are taught entirely through example problems. The easiest way to learn Physics is to work problems as you learn the material - and that is exactly what this 2 DVD series provides. You will immediately improve your problem-solving skills which will help on homework and exams, and you will have a reference for many of the commonly asked problems in Physics. If you have a problem with your homework, simply find a similar problem fully worked on the Ultimate Physics Tutor!
How are the MathTutorDVD.com line of DVDs different from others?
The answer is simple. Most math instruction involves a lengthy discussion of the abstract theory behind the Math before instructing the student in how to solve problems. While there are some merits to this style, in the vast majority of the cases the student quickly gets bored and frustrated by the time he or she starts to solve the problems. This DVD, in contrast, teaches all of the concepts by working fully narrated problems step-by-step, which is a much more engaging way to learn.
Exceptional value and affordability.
MathTutorDVD.com believes in providing value for our customers. This is a 10 Hour DVD course. We could have easily split this content into many DVD courses costing the same price but instead chose to keep the cost down so that this content is affordable to all.
What is our teaching style like?
All topics on this DVD are taught by working example problems. There are no traditional lectures of background material that won't help you solve problems and improve your skills. We believe in teaching-by-doing and that is what you will receive by watching this DVD. The Equations Of Motion are explained, for example, by working many problems in step-by-step detail. We begin with the easier problems and work our way up to the harder problems. The student immediately gains confidence, does not get bored, and quickly feels like he or she can conquer the material. This method is extremely powerful and has proven itself time and again. Perhaps most importantly, problem solving skills are honed early on that will help with homework and taking exams even after watching the very first lesson.
