The Last Lecture

I dedicated this post to the best lecture i have ever seen. And yes i have attended hundreds of lectures during my studies and i can say this is the most inspiring lecture i have ever heard. That is why i am here to share it with people who have not seen it yet. It is a bit long but i am sure most of you will sit through it. So sit back and enjoy this wonderful lecture.

My greatest thanks to Randy Pausch for this wonderful and inspiring delivery. Rest Well and God bless your family.

Just wanted to add some take away i have from this lecture.

1)Life is not about what you achieve in the end that matters. What's important is the journey you go through in achieving that goal. If you have seen this lecture, the greatest and most valuable lessons he learned comes from the dream he never really did achieve.

So don't focus on the failing part of that failed test or exams. Look and focus at the valuable lessons that you got out of it instead.

2)There's always a wall that stops you from achieving your dream. And this wall is good as it is a test to see how bad you really want to achieve that dream. It is good as well since it filter out those people that are not really serious so that you get less competitors.

Don't be discourage if you meet with some difficulties or problem as you are working towards your goal. They are merely there to test how bad you really want it.

3)If you give a person enough time, you will see their good side. I find this very true and i truly believe that if you devote enough time and patience in to every child, you will eventually see that they are capable.

This is a good point to take home for all parents and teachers. Give your child and students enough time and patience and you will be surprised what they are capable of.

Please leave me a comment and share with me on your thoughts and take home after seeing The Last Lecture as well.

P.S. Kindly send me an email: if you would like a trial Physics Tuition lesson.

3 techniques to a better physics results.

Again I am going to share some simple studying techniques and methods that I have encouraged my physics tuition student to adopt. These are studying and revision techniques that can help you study more effectively and efficiently.
The 3 methods are as follows:

Revision - Always do constant revision. If you have the time, do it consistently, everyday if possible. If not, at the minimum I will tell my student to at least understand the previous topics taught before the lesson on the next topics begins. This is so that you can catch up with the lesson. You don’t want to sit in class and not understand anything that the teacher is saying because you are unsure about the previous topics. You will be wasting your time if that’s the case. Then you will be spending more time to catch up with the previous topics and the current topics. That will be more ineffective and inefficient right?

Marking down – Always mark down questions that you find challenging and you have difficulty doing. This can really help you saves a lot of time when it comes to revision. You can zoom right to the question that you find difficult and challenging and recap what you don’t quite understand the last time round. You can then quickly remember how to solve these problems. Usually you can learn a lot from questions that you have difficulty doing as they exposes the concepts that you are unclear of. So going straight to those questions can help you revise those concepts faster and easier.

Make notes – Always make notes as you are studying and revising. You can also start making your own notes as the teacher is teaching. Write down small notes to help you understand that concepts or topics. When you are revising and studying, you can reinforce these notes with more points to strengthen your understanding. Doing these not only helps you to understand and remember a concept more clearly, it also helps you to create your own study notes where you can get the main points on any topics quickly and efficiently.

The methods above may require some practice and getting used to. I would suggest trying it slowly for maybe one subject and get used to it first. When you get accustomed to these techniques, you can then adopt them for other subjects. The 3 methods above which I often inculcate in my physics tuition student may seem to be little things. But I am sure that they can help you to save time and study more effectively which means you will have more time for yourself.

Physics Tuition - Moment 2

I am sure many of the students out there complained about physics being a boring subject. And i am sure that you all detest going for your physics classes or Physics Tuition. Well here's a video that i hope can change that.

After the revision on Moment in my previous post, here is an interesting video showing moment in practice.

I know this may look impossible and you must be thinking now that there is definitely some sort of camera trick involved. But if you know physics, you will realize that this is a beautiful trick making wonderful use of the center of gravity of the various objects and the principle of moment.

Personally, i feel that physics is the most interesting subjects as it deals with our everyday life. Everything and anything happening around us is physics. Well, I hoped that this video on physics tricks with moment can interest you people out there.
