Students who need help with physics topics will find this remedial course provides a simple and effective way to catch up on subject matter. You'll find this course useful if you:
- Need to bring your physics grade up
- Are trying to catch up on any missed physics homework
- Have a hard time understanding your physics lessons in class
- Want some extra preparation materials for an upcoming physics exam
- Prefer self-paced learning in multiple formats (visual or auditory)
- Would like a low-pressure alternative to formal or traditional classes
You'll be able to benefit from this remedial course in several ways:
- It's helpful: Short lesson series make the material engaging and easier to absorb.
- It's convenient: Study when you want, where you want from any computer or mobile device.
- It's flexible: Whether you learn better by reading, hearing or watching a video, we've got you covered.
- It's authoritative: Our physics instructors are experts who make topics understandable and fun!
Using the Course
We've designed this course so that it's easy to navigate for students who are struggling with physics concepts. Check out the two most popular options to decide which best fits your needs:
- Start at the beginning with a review of the history of physics and its branches, and advance through the chapters and lessons in order until you reach the last lesson on the photoelectric effect. Lessons follow a natural progression, making this option simple to follow along.
- Identify physics topics you find most difficult, and skip the material you already know. If you only need to study fluid mechanics, you can go straight to that chapter. Though some lessons might refer to topics in previous lessons, each one is designed to stand alone to make sure you get all of the info you need to understand a topic.
Simply follow these steps, and you'll be on your way to mastering physics!
1. Start at the beginning or find the chapter subjects or lesson topics you need to learn about.
2. Open a lesson and play the video.
3. Test your understanding of the material using the short lesson quizzes and chapter exams.
4. Ask our expert instructors questions if you need extra help learning a physics concept.
5. Go to the next lesson in the chapter to continue learning.
6. See your course progress on the physics remedial course page.
