Summary

A supplementary text for introductory courses in Algebra-Based Physics.

Designed for concurrent self-study or remedial math work for students in introductory courses, this text is ideal for students who find themselves unable to keep pace because of a lack of familiarity with necessary mathematical tools. It not only shows them clearly how mathematics is directly applied to physics, but discusses math anxiety in general and how to overcome it. Instead of a rigorous development of the concepts of mathematics (as is found in a typical math book), the text describes the various mathematical concepts and tools (including algebra, trigonometry, geometry, vector, and statistics) and their direct use in solving physics problems. Almost all sections end with worked-out examples and exercises directly from introductory physics.

Features :

  • Ideal for students with weak mathematics backgrounds.
  • Helps students improve their math skills generally and develop competence and confidence in using math in a physics course.
  • A discussion on math anxiety.
  • Helps students understand the basis of their anxiety and offers suggests on how to deal with it.
  • Shows common math mistakes.
  • Points out traps and pitfalls that students often encounter.
  • Worked-out examples and problems from physics--In almost all sections.
  • Shows students how the concept of mathematics is directly applied to physics.
  • An abundance of tables and figures--Many (e.g., the units of base and derived quantities) highlighted in boxes.
  • Offers support for visual learners and provides convenient study and review tools.
  • Appendices.
  • Provides students with a convenient source of important physical constants, useful data, and conversion factors.
