For most of us, there have been times where we go “wait, what?” after zoning out for only half an hour in the middle of chem class. Luckily, as 21st century students, we can just Google the homework questions and solutions will come up. But since we’re mature and responsible young adults, as I’m sure we all are, we’re not satisfied with just a surface level understanding of the materials that we learn. So, here are some of the YouTube channels that have proven to be helpful resources for acing your math and science classes.
3Blue1Brown is a math YouTube channel created by Grant Sanderson. This channel is great for visualising math concepts. It covers topics ranging from calculus and linear algebra to topology.
This is a math channel created by Presh Talwalkar. It features videos on brain teasers, riddles, logic puzzles, and viral math problems. These are fun to watch and they often provide insights into problem-solving.
Physics Girl is a YouTube channel created by Dianna Cowern. There are some great videos covering the basics to get you started. Diana’s videos mainly focus on mathematical modeling, which comes up everywhere in physics problems.
The videos are typically less than five minutes and they walk you through proofs of formulas and equations in math and physics. This saves you from memorizing a lot of things because you get to derive them during tests and quizzes (but try not to do this unless you have to).
The Organic Chemistry Tutor provides tutorial videos on organic chemistry, general chemistry, physics, algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus. These videos are actually super helpful-just take a look at the comments or watch one yourself.
