PHYSICS, an interesting and provocative discipline, is the study of nature, and everyday phenomena. It aims to explain these phenomena in terms of the fundamental laws of the universe or the laws of nature.
Physics is the study of matter and energy and their relationship. It is described as the science of why things work. Physics is practically part of human life and it plays a significant role in enriching it.
The following are 10 unique tips to get good grades in Physics:

Have a nutritious breakfast before going to your class. Good meals allow students to properly focus on their studies resulting to good grades. Eating well offers long term health benefits, keeps energy level steady, and boosts immunity.
I believe that in order for the learners to develop interest especially in Science and Math subjects, the teachers should always emphasize as much as possible the importance and applicability of the subject itself in their daily activities in life. I hope that by following these simple approaches to get good grades in Physics, the students will have deeper appreciation of Physics.
