Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review


The application of physical principles in solving mathematics problems have often been neglected in the teaching of physics or mathematics, especially at the secondary school level. This paper discusses how to apply the mechanical principles to geometry problems via concrete examples, which aims at providing insight and inspirations to physics or mathematics teachers that physics can be a useful tool in mathematics problem solving.
