Problems in the teaching of physics are the subject of various research. Teaching physics at Secondary Vocational School in non-technical graduate or in study fields means meeting with pupils who have little interest in physics. They look at this subject as unnecessary, often regarded as demanding (even because they must use mathematics). Their knowledge is therefore low. Nevertheless, the inclusion of appropriate teaching methods can attract interest in pupils in this subject, which will certainly improve the results in physical education. In my contribution, I compare the results of physical education at the Secondary School of Gastronomy, Hotel and Forestry Bzenec, the Contribution Organization and the Secondary School of Forestry in Tvrdošín in the Slovak Republic.
