Physics Tutor: Scalars and Vectors
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. What sets this series apart from other physics teaching tools is that the concepts are taught entirely through step-by step example problems of increasing difficulty. It works by introducing each new concept in an easy to understand way and using example problems that are worked out step-by-step and line by line to completion. If a student has a problem with coursework or homework, simply find a similar problem fully worked on in the series and review for the steps needed to solve the problem. Students will immediately improve their problem-solving skills which will help with homework and exams and will have a reference for many of the commonly asked problems in Physics. Learn the difference between a scalar and a vector, with examples from daily life. Jason Gibson demonstrates how to add and subtract vectors using both graphical and numerical methods. See him work through problems step by step to explain how vectors work and how they can be expressed in simple language. Each teachers guide includes subject matter revision and suggestions on how to present material, questions to ask students and class projects to help illustrate the key concepts.
