Abstract

ABSTRACT
Physics is considered as the most challenging area of learning within the
field ofscience, and it usually magnetisesfewerstudents compared to other
science related subjects from secondary school to university. Generally,
students tend to have a negative attitude towards physics presumably
because they lack interest in the subject and the syllabusitself. Thisresearch
is carried out to study the learning attitude in physics and challenges
towards learning force and motion among Form Four students in Klang.
A total of 200 secondary schools students who are taking physics subject
from six schools participated in the study. A descriptive research design
was employed using survey method to analyse the students’attitude towards
learning physics. The findings on the learning attitudestestshowed majority
of the students have favourable attitudes in learning physics. However,
majority of students hold poor score in physics test, probably due to low
science grade obtained by students in ‘Penilaian Pentaksiran Tingkatan 3’
(PT3). Another finding from the data revealed that the nature of topic was
found to be the most predominance challenge in learning force and motion
among the participants. The findings are beneficial as they can serve as
a stepping stone in overcoming the underlying sources of difficulty that
impede quality learning of physics. More in depth study is needed to look
into this matter with more number of participants including teachers who
are teaching physics.
