Question of the Day: High School Physics
Two children sit on a merry-go-round. One sits from the center, and the other sits from the center. If the children are in a straight line form the center, which child has a greater speed?
They have the same speed
The child from the center
The child from the center
We must know the period to draw a conclusion
We must know the acceleration to draw a conclusion
High school physics is a complex, upper-level subject that can seem difficult to master. This is especially true if you are taking it as a prerequisite and not because you hold a genuine interest. Whether you are a high school student with dreams of working in technology or engineering, or taking high school physics to satisfy a college prep requirement, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools have the resources to help you get the most out of your education. By accessing the free high school physics review material made available on the Learning Tools website, you can enhance your high school physics practice with the opportunity to boost your knowledge and confidence.
One of the most valuable resources on the Learning Tools website is the Question of the Day. While it is not as extensive as other resources, it does a great job of inspiring you to think about high school physics material more often. Moreover, the Question of the Day is great for students who don’t have a lot of time to dedicate toward studying supplemental material. By answering one randomized high school physics practice question each day, you are getting a quick high school physics practice session that can help you prepare for any upcoming tests.
The Question of the Day covers all of the high school physics help that is available through the Learning Tools website. When you choose to answer the Question of the Day, you will be given a problem relating to electricity, magnetism, energy, forces, motions, mechanics, waves, sound, light, or thermodynamics. The actual question you are given will be completely random, meaning that you have no way to prepare for what sort of question you will receive. This is quite helpful as you do your daily physics review, as it helps you to develop an understanding of all the content related to high school physics.
Once you have completed the Question of the Day, you will be taken to a results page. Here, you will be able to check your answer and read an explanation for the problem you were given. In this explanation, you are told how the correct answer was reached so that you can learn from any mistake. Moreover, by committing the explanations to memory, you are learning important terms, definitions, and formulas that may appear on actual high school physics exams.
Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offer a variety of free resources. These resources are designed to help you get the most out of your high school physics practice, so that you are better prepared for test day. You are given access to a number of flashcards, where you can drill yourself on important information. In addition, you can review physics material in an organized fashion through the Learn by Concept feature. When you’re ready, you can take one of the high school chemistry practice tests to check your overall physics knowledge. By completing the Question of the Day and using the other Learning Tools, you are working toward achieving a balanced high school physics study routine.
