I was excused from attending my maths classes by my teacher as he felt they were boring me; I was happy working through the textbooks on my own. My physics teacher was quite boring too but luckily my school library had Feynman's Lectures on Physics; so I managed to learn some physics. Try to read Newton's Principia - you will conclude Newton was probably quite useless as a teacher!

To be very frank, I was, rather stil I am more fascinated by the history any scientific invention & discovery rather than the laws or rules behind it! I won't blame my teachers for my poor scoring in maths & science, neverthless they too failed to make me interested in their respective subjects! I am saying this because I know do well only in those subjects or on those areas in which feel interested! Hence if Newton was able to make me interested (off course had he been my teacher) in either maths or physics, things wouldn't have been any better!

Math is me fav subject. As for the teacher well she was a hottie indeed and very brainy. No wonder I was her fav student in college. As for Newton well I cant say much about him or his Physics.

Collg lol. Ah, nevermind, actually, getting past Newtonian Physics, it did get quite interesting when it got to things like multiple dimension, folding time & space etc, but the basics courses were pretty dang boring, as interesting as watching cement dry. In math, well, I don't want to pretend to b someone I'm not, and well, I'm more qualitatively inclined, my math success was as good as eyesight. Actually, our second yr phys teacher was a gem. She literally showed us & guided us thru how Arthur C. Clarke's works helped spur the Sputnik & materialize the satellite. Not take up "book" 100% of time. The advanced astronomy topics got interesting, but when it got to the basics, it was really a killer to stay awake lol.

If Isaac Newton was your teacher, then he would have pasted his name on my research
