“Why is it that when you look in the mirror, the left and right directions appear flipped, but not the up and down?”
Do not read further until you have honestly tried answering that question!
The question was asked at the Physics StackExchange.
As often is the case, using only text is not at all good when it comes to explaining physics [^]; adding figures does help [^]. And then, animations are even better at it than having just “dead” (static) figures. Going further, interactive graphics, which let the user participate in manipulating the presentation of information, of course beats those mere animations. Better than that, if possible, is an actual demonstration in real life, accompanied by an explanation using simple words.
The best mode of teaching-learning, of course, is an actual and immediate interaction with a person, who in turn might use (and allow you to use) any and all of the above options!
And that’s the reason why, regardless of how much technology progresses, the actual person-to-person type of teaching will never go out of business.
