in any field
2. The applied science known as is pure science
3. Pure math different from other science in that is a logic of relation and does
not depend for its structure on laws of nature
4. Physical science and the biological or life science
5. No they are not. Because science need math to make interrelationship
between theory and practice

3. Speak out loudly the following formulae

a) a + b = c
a plus b equals c
b) a b = c

Physics Education In West Borneo

As we known that physics is a difficult subject to most students. It have
complex material and certainly have a lot of variation of formulas so that it can
make students become less interested in the physics lesson. In West Borneo physics
education still is quite alarming. Most students still think that physics is a difficult
subject to overcome. Especially for students in the area, some of them choose to
not take science just caused by the presence of physics.
The lack of physics education in the west borneo can be caused by staff of
teaching is so less. Its mean that teacher beside physics teacher can teach physics
lesson if the teacher was unable to attend. This is certainty is not effective than if
taught directly by the physics teacher. In addition school which have less staff of
teacher , the cause of the lack of physics education in west borneo that is the less
of instructional media such as, practical tool and absence of technology that can
help the students easy to understand the lesson.
As we known that physics is always related with nature and we realize that
concepts of physics going on around us for example, when we stand. T the moment
when we stand already happened many physics consepts such as the concept of
equilibrium. In studying the case for some students will find it difficult if they just
imagining it. But if assisted with applications on your laptop or computer, it will be
easy to students to understand the real concepts of physics that happening without
feeling a figure out.
To improve the quality of education in west borneo, at least the staff of
teacher should be proportional with school needed should at least have more than
one teacher. But in this case does not mean the school can arbitrarily increase the
quantity of teachers without regard to the quality of teacher. Because however, a
qualified teacher and has a high dedication of education is much better than ten
teachers but dont have dedication to education. And also every school should have
facilities that support the learning of physics, be it practical tools and also
technology such as laptop and in focus to make students easily to understand the
concept of physics that happend in nature and our daily life.
