Unless you have a real passion for it, some subjects can make for quite dull and difficult classes. Physics is one of those subjects; fiendishly complex and full of mathematical intricacies, you are studying the behavior of the universe itself! The physical laws of matter, energy and the fundamental forces of nature are really not something to be approached lightly, which is why many physics professors are, let’s just say, on the more serious side of the teaching spectrum.
That doesn’t mean that physics can’t be fun though! With the right personality, a passion for the subject and a little creativity, a good teacher can inspire students to learn anything. I mean, who didn’t just love Dead Poets Society?
