Millions of EquationsWatch
There are lots of equations to memorise in science and maths GCSE.DOes anyone have any good methods or tips to memorise them? I'd be so grateful because I can barely remember any
However, If you don't know them for Maths I'd just do practice questions until the formula sticks in your head, and for Physics write flashcards of all the equations you need to know
also there are sometimes little rules like most of the power equations are multiplied anyway
1 person says the what equation ur looking for e.g whats the equations for power using energy E=pt or p=E/t
before u grab the card say the equation and then check.
worked for me at least, and now i can't forget the equations
So for example: p = mv (momentum = mass x velocity) idk if this is a gcse equation but, you need to think deeper at the individual components of the equation. Mass (scalar quantity) is just summarising the quantity of an object (so if you get a question with an object such as a ball, think does it have mass??) and velocity just describing how fast its going. Then understand what momentum actually is, essentially its nothing, its just describing a relationship between mass and velocity. Something can have momentum only if its moving because it needs velocity (think of velocity component) or if it has mass.
This is just an example but can be applied to pretty much any aspect of maths and physics and will really help you to recall the equations through deeper knowledge, also you will be more flexible in uncomfortable situations, and this is precisely an examiners' fetish.
However, this is a hard process, and takes a lot of brain power to really understand where the components of the equation derive from, but if you do it correctly you will never forget the equations (because technically you arent remembering them at all)
btw I did this for my physics gcse and got 100% (no brag, it really works so imo dont try parrot learn them, you can use flashcards to write them down on and stimulate your visual memory but dont become fixated on these).
