Sec 3 Pure Physics MYE Post-mortem
[These slides will be uploaded on my blog after today]
#1 – Many students don’t even understand basic concepts (e.g. don’t know how to draw FBD, Newton’s 3rd Law)
#2 – Students have understood concepts at one time, but are unable to recall (e.g. refraction, lens, kinematics equations & graphs)
#3 – Higher order questions very poorly done
#4 – Majority of students not meticulous. (e.g. marks deducted for s.f., units, careless errors)
#5 – Students appear fatigued and unmotivated to study / check paper
