Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
Last sunday i made a post on the forum that i was going to start teacing myself, since i didn`t get into the school i wanted. So i`m doing this kind of to see how well i can learn outside of the system of education. And i think it is a good idea to write about it on i-power. If anybody is interested in this kind of thing they will have something to read, and i get yet another opportunity to practice my english, so it`s win-win.
The way i worked this first week was that i set myself two goals. This is no huge amount, but it kept me from getting overwhelmed this first time. One goal was work-related, the other was math-related.
The work-goal was eggs. I wrote down a bunch of questions i had about eggs and then found the answers. I found this most interesting since i had to think not only about the answers to the questions, but also which questions i wanted answers to.
For the math-related goal i decided to complete a chapter in a math-book i bought earlier this year (the same book they use in the school i wished to enter). I felt i skipped a part of the process since i there can just follow the book from start to the beginning.
I found out it was very easy to motivate myself to study when i had a day-off from work. It actually felt like a relief to do something else than playing gaimz half the day.
I also checked out Khan academy. Thanks to michael i now know the difference between compound- and simple interest.
