Hu performs in class.
A video showing a physics teacher playing Jay Chou’s “Chrysanthemum Terrace” with nothing more than a steel wire and a magnet in a class has made waves on the internet.
Hu Yinquan, the physics teacher and an associate professor at Jiangxi Normal University, according to CRI Online.
According to Feng Yuner, a junior student of Physics at Communication and Electronic College of the university, her physics teacher can not only use cups, suckers and zip-top cans to create his own musical instrument, but also play many popular songs.
“We love to attend his class. He would make experimental equipment by himself and occasionally, he will play us songs.” Feng told reporters.
“I simply meant to use this teaching method to make abstract concepts easier to understand and make my students more interested in the subject.” Hu said.
Hu was surprised to hear that the video of his experiment had achieved popularity online. “It’s a great thing if the video can make more people become interested in learning physics,” he said.
