In real-world quantitative problems, although people are good at what they do, they don't think like a major in math or physics. They only see what is physically present, and don't know how to think in abstract but quantitative ways a mathematician or a physics major does. So all fields are wide open for you. In my opinion, in the beginning, it can be quite ...

"Closer to physics" is still an extremely wide category. Physics grads work in aviation, automotive, petrochemical, nuclear (that's me), electronics, computers, etc. etc. First, always make sure you are completing the requirements for your degree. I would suggest that you pick your undergrad courses for things that you find engaging so that you have a ...

Let me make a few suggestions that may add up to an answer or not. But, I hope they are worth considering. First, and I think most important, is that you don't try to lay out the trajectory of your work life to firmly too early. You are probably young enough that your future will be long. Setting things firmly in place now might deny you opportunities ...

What sort of jobs are physics majors usually offered? Jobs that require smart people! Physics is hard, employers understand physics graduates must be smart (without necessarily knowing why), and hire such graduates for a range positions that require smart people. And what courses should I take for them? The specific courses don't matter so much, ...

You're asking in the wrong forum. I'm not saying this is more suited to another Stack Exchange, but rather that you shouldn't be asking someone else for help with this question in the first place because you are the person best-positioned to answer it. Go to your local jobs portal and search for "degree physics". You'll get more relevant results than anyone ...

I don't know enough of the details to actually judge, but there is a benign explanation. You say the the course overall is quite elementary. You also say that it is focused elsewhere than security and that this is a side topic. Let me start with that. There is a Pedagogical Pattern called Spiral in which it is suggested that advanced topics can be ...

If the teacher is not a reasonable person, and some are not, you should keep your head down and hope that your fellow students will get some real security training, at least on the job, before making decisions in this area. If the teacher is reasonable, select a very small number of references on the topic, preferably including peer-reviewed papers. Look ...

Most times you get the same recipe, let's say a pie crust recipe but measurement amounts are different. Sometimes it is 2 cups or 2.5 cups or in grams but the ratio is the same. If you were to reference your professor, s/he would not like it that you give his teaching material away. How to make your exercise sample yours, change proportions and examples....

My advice would be to go to the website of the university you are thinking about enrolling in, find out who the course coordinator is, and email them about your situation. Explain that you are willing to put in the effort to get your knowledge up to an acceptable level. You may find that they can offer you a bridging course, or suggest having sessions with ...

Actually, I think it is easy to avoid most problems. Plagiarism is about presenting something of others as if it is your own. If you cite the source, giving proper attribution, you avoid plagiarism absolutely. Copyright is another issue, but it is about copying something for which you don't have the proper rights. You don't seem to be doing that. Taking a ...

As an alternative to basing your videos on someone else's work, I suggest writing your own exercises. Each exercise should bring out the issues you want to cover in the corresponding video. If you write your own exercises, on your own time, you own the copyright, and can do what you want with them, including creating videos about solving them. That would ...

You should ask whoever created the exercises for permission. If they give it to you, then you can proceed. If they don't give you permission, better to know before you create the videos so you can do something else. This is pretty much a good strategy any time you are dealing with copyright issues -- ask permission before you use the material.
