Back in the day, I attended a physics class that has stuck with me till now.

I can’t remember any other physics class but I can recall this particular one. Not everything, but the beginning (and most important) part of the class.

Disinterest (on the part of the student)

You cannot teach interest. Without interest, you cannot get attention. Without attention, even the simplest subjects will become hard for your students.

It is better to arouse interest and not teach anything than to teach everything to an uninterested bunch of students

I noticed this at the university also. Lecturers who can’t arouse interest are those we know as horrible.
