Having trouble with Physics
Hi. I am a junior in high school, and I am currently taking Calculus AB AP and Physics C: Mechanics AP because I think I want to go into some kind of engineering field. I am doing well in Calc but terrible in Physics; I just don't understand the concepts and theories at all. Is there an engineering field more focused on math or is engineering not right for me?

    Hello Nicole,
    Most engineering programs have physics class you will have to take as a core class. I do not think you should let this deter you from going into engineering. With a little tutoring I think you will be fine in that class. I would encourage you to look at the different types of engineering to see what might fit your interests. I hope you this helps in your decision.
