An interesting subject that you studied in school or university?

I think physics was interesting in my middle school. A senior physics teacher taught me this subject and he was also my neighbor. He did a lot of simple physics experiment in the class so that we could easily understand the rules of physics. What's more, he was humorous and he always made us laugh in the class so we often learned knowledge in a relaxed atmosphere. He was warm and kind, we could easily talk with him and ask him some study problems. Thanks to his great job, my physics performance was always the best in my class and I got a third prize in a national physics competition. I think physics is interesting because it is about the basic natural rules in our world. We can apply these basic rules to make our lives better. For instance, once I applied my physics knowledge to fix my cellphone and it worked. That was a great sense of fulfillment. Do you have an interesting subject that you studied in school or university? :)

I think that the best class I've ever taken was Human Sexuality. It was such an interesting course that I always wanted to go to class and listen to lectures. My professor was also really cool and she had a good personality which also added to the class. But so far, that was my favorite class I've ever taken and I never dreaded having to wake up early to go to that one class.

The interesting subject that I studied in my university when I entered college is Microbiology. I was fascinated that there are microscopic organisms that we cannot see but has life.I really enjoyed learning about the different microbes and the way they look. I also enjoyed our experiments in the laboratory especially growing microbes,water bacteriology and the culture and sensitivity test.I was amaze that there are microbes that can resist on one antibiotic but not on the other.Even though our teacher is quite strict,we really learned a lot.

I never liked science and especially physics at school our teacher was boring and no inspiration at all. I think it depends on how you are taught, teachers have different methods of teaching to get the same information sunk into heads :0) I did enjoy English,Art and History, but I tend to be naturally creative came easier to me. Now I am a Floral designer by trade and write poetry, so I guess it worked for me..hahaha

The most interesting subject for me would be math. Everything that involves numbers and computations like College Algebra, Trigonometry, Solid Mensuration, Geometry, and Physics. Those kind of subjects really pumps me up to try harder every time because no effort is enough to fully understand their true meaning and complexity. Also, they offer a wide range of problems that will give you a headache before you can solve it. However, that is just how math really works and I loved it.

anatomy has always fascinated me, how things works, flows and moves, am not one of the topnotch students in my class but i know good anatomy and i rely on that right now as i am a nurse in a small hospital, and also it is good were you can use it against possible robbers or muggers that will come along the way.

My 2nd semester at college I had a class that studied Japanese Pop Culture. Was a whole lot of fun with a very enthusiastic teacher. Class covered various different pop culture topics in Japan ranging from anime and manga to sumo wrestling to baseball to jpop music.

I love studying creative writing. It was interesting and I've discovered new ways to express myself. The course helped my brain storming new ideas for writing stories, poems, and song lyrics. I've gained alot of knowledge from studying creative writing.

I always enjoyed studying music when I was at school, because I find it fascinating that there's such an intricate system within all the notes that composers use to make all of the music and songs that we hear every day of our lives. I have a piece of music published thanks to being able to compose it in school, and this is something that I have always been thankful for, and I always will be thankful that I have been able to do something which means so much to me. I also enjoyed physics as it is great to see how things work.

School level physics is more like a history lesson. It is so out of date, incomplete, and often plain wrong! Space travel, geo-stationary satellites, and such have existed since long before you were born. But is "Orbital mechanics" on the agenda? And just search the Internet to see how many people are still believing "perpetual motion". You know it is impossible but I bet you can't explain WHY it is! Real world physics is learned long after leaving school.
