I take a lot of notes on notability. It’s sort of therapeutic, using calligraphy to write notes and creating colorful diagrams to aid in visual learning. However, in this assignment, I wanted to make a mind map of everything we’ve learned so far in physics. The portion enclosed within the blue rectangle are sketches from my previous notes, and everything else is hand-drawn for this assignment. Creating this actually helped me prepare for my test since I was able to visualize the material better. Furthermore, two parts of the sketch are “step-by-step tips” that explained how to solve an electricity problem. In addition, an aliens and astronaut are stuck together in physics land and the only way out is to answer a question. Answering an electric field problem using the steps outlined in the notes was a great way to practice for the upcoming test. I really liked incorporating funny doodles and characters with dialogue within these notes, and I found myself having fun studying physics (never happened before). I also kept looking back at the notes because it was pretty, and before I knew it, the steps to solve an electric field problem were ingrained in my head.
I think I got carried away as I really enjoyed doodling—the planets sketch took more than two hours alone. I kept wanting to add more and more elements, despite having spent ages on this assignment. Maybe I could sell this study guide for some money.
