Asked by: Demetrius

Answer: Hi Demetrius! Physics can be a bit of a challenge, but there's a lot of resources to help you out! A lot of students find they're more successful in the course if they stay up-to-date with the assignments, and make sure that they can do them on their own. There's a lot of answers to assignments online, but it's going to make a huge difference in your grade if you take the time to learn the material on your own, even if it takes longer initially. It's better to get a low grade on an assignment but understand the material in the end than it is to do well on the assignments but not understand the material! There's a lot of resources that I recommend you use: go see your prof during their office hours; make friends in your classes and labs who you can ask questions to; as well, check out the SNAP Centre (http://www.smu.ca/academics/science-snap-centre.html)! Overall, try to stay on top of your work and make sure you thoroughly understand it, and don't be afraid to ask for help! Best of luck with it!
