Task Description:The world communicates by making extensive use of the electromagnetic spectrum. For the average person this is commonly accessed using radio waves. These radio waves may be over the AM or FM radio wave bands or the radio waves that transmit our television signals. Not only are people always within a ‘phone call of each other anywhere in the world they are also able to find out exactly where in the world they are by use of
Understanding that challenge is necessary to expand skills, I took Advanced Placement Physics as a junior in high school. Determined to excel I pored over books, sought assistance from teachers, and diligently applied myself. I was certain that an A grade was imminent. I was working hard, alas an A grade eluded me. Ironically physics, a subject I actual enjoy, was teaching me a hard lesson, sometimes, no matter how hard you work, success does not come on the first try.
First off, who I am as a learner has changed over the past years. At times before, I wouldn’t take certain classes or assignments seriously and have learned my lessons when I failed. I believe having classmates at the time who weren’t as focused as I wanted to be, played a big role in my lack of understanding in classes. I understood later that if I felt learning was so important to me, I need to realize that it is my future and I needed to focus on my own. Having learner in my top 5 strengths defines me very well. Rath (2007) explains that, “The process, more than the content or the result, is especially exciting for you” (p.133). I believe this defines me as a learner because I enjoy having books in hand, opening up my notebook to write notes and learning new ways to understand the class. Regardless if the content is something I have to get in to or if I don’t do well on tests, I enjoy the process of studying and learning more even when I know I didn’t do so well; that is what motivates me. I believe as long as I keep this mindset and understand that this is my strength, I will continue to grow and further my education as much as possible. Even though I have failed a few of my last classes, I never let that stop me from continuing. Knowing that I have “failed” makes me realize I know I can do better and I try my hardest not to let it get me down. I will not get further if I don’t keep trying and as a learner I am a motivator to myself in my studies.
Light passed through a transmission grating is often sent in all directions due to interference. The grating acts as a new wave source and causes the light to travel in different paths. Equation 1 below shows the relationship between path difference and light direction due to constructive interference. D represents the line spacing and sinƟ=a/c according to the drawing below.
During my undergraduate career, I have learn a lot more than what was taught in the classroom. It was an experience that you cannot describe in words; something you can only experience. Luckily, I had environment that encouraged me to explore beyond what a textbook has to over via instructor, counselor or peer. When your challenges are arranged as a journey of learning, surrounded by a supportive environment, the wonders you can learn about the world are endless.

Hi Sheehan, being a student it is always hard to do as we think for all our classes. My major is computer science as well and I remember when I took programming class it was too much for me. We often get frustrated and stressed out about our homework, test and exam, but eventually we have to do them and we do it too. I kind of feel its happen due to not having enough time because almost all the college students work at the same time. It happens to me all the time, I don’t want to procrastinate things but I end up doing the same thing over and over. I like the way you believe in yourself as an optimistic person which is equally important to deal with stressful situation. I also agree and believe that having growth mindset is not only learning
When a person is on the verge of failing a course, if they catch the failing grade fast enough, there are many things they can change to reach success in the course. The things they make different may have been their downfall to begin with. They could have never studied. While it is great to take good notes in class, what good are the notes if they are never practically used? Another part of studying is to look at the textbook outside of a classroom setting, and in college the student must buy the books don’t let them go to waste. To study properly
People’s experiences shape their lives and influence the choices they make, their expectations, and formulate their behavior and mindset. I have always loved to learn! As a child, I was constantly at the library and playing school. I recall being in 5th grade when my teacher handed me the science manual and a box of equipment, and asked me to ‘figure it out’ and recreate it for the class. I couldn’t have been more thrilled!
Mastering your note taking skills, doing all assignments, and most importantly coming to the lectures will lead to the student passing the class. While we may all not pass with flying colors doing these simple steps can assist in having a successful as well as enjoyable class experience. How incredible is it to learn something new? To be introduced to a way of thinking about the topic from a different perspective. While it may be a cliché thing to say, “There is more than one way to skin a cat” and this in my opinion is how any student should approach a class no matter how much they may feel they already
You have learned so much in the classes you have taken. Your teachers have prepared you to be critical thinkers, and to rise to the challenge of hard work.
Taking classes at Mercer County Community College while I am in high school was another challenge for me during my process of graduating early. I have no free time to do anything because Tuesdays and Thursdays are the days of my class. I do my work for the class on time while doing my high school work as well. I was taking on a lot but every second my time I spend doing something useful I was gaining knowledge. Everything I did was for a reason and I will be successful because I was doing exactly what God has planned for me. I overcame this challenge by pushing on non stop, I took it little by little till I got one thing out the way to another. God and my ambition is what keeps me driven, I was given a gift that I am willing to find by doing all it takes. You can not be lazy or procrastinate, that is something I did not do, and that is why I am succeeding. No one can possibly fathom on how far I will go to achieve what I deserve I will knock out every challenge that comes my way. Another thing that made me overcome my challenge was the famous quote by Muhammad Ali “Float like a butterfly, sting like a
I have found personally that the environments and classes that I struggle with become all the more fulfilling when I am able to emerge from that struggle as a stronger student. Last year, I was in an advanced placement physics class that I struggled with all year. The class was one of the hardest things that I had ever taken, and every test that I took I performed poorly on. However, I chose to remain in the class instead of dropping it, and retook each test, learning from and correcting my mistakes. Because I struggled with this class so profoundly, I was forced to work hard, something that I never needed to do in school prior to this. Once I understood the concepts and how they fit together, it was as if a puzzle piece clicked inside my brain. Similarly, David Sedaris describes his struggle with learning a foreign language in his piece Me Talk Pretty One Day. Sedaris speaks of his experience living and learning abroad in France, where he struggled with grasping the language. Through his struggle to understand, Sedaris pushed himself to work harder in the class and eventually had a moment where everything fell into place, even stating that the “world opened up” as he joyfully exclaimed in broken French, “I know the thing that you speak exact now. Talk me more, you, plus, please, plus.” This moment of discovery happened to me time and time again in my physics class as a concept that I did not understand finally made sense. This struggle, although frustrating and unpleasant to be in the midst of, is essential to learning. Throughout my years of English classes, I always performed at the top of the class- however, my standardized testing scores presented surprisingly little growth. I can remember the moment my sixth grade year as my teacher told me, smiling broadly, that I my MAP score was the same as the average junior in high school. For a short time I felt
