A supplementary text for introductory courses in Calculus-Based Physics. Designed for students who plan to take or who are presently taking calculus-based physics courses. This book will develop necessary mathematical skills and help students gain the competence to use precalculus, calculus, vector algebra, vector calculus, and the statistical analysis of experimental data. Students taking intermediate physics, engineering, and other science courses will also find the book usefulndash;and will be able to use the book as a mathematical resource for these intermediate level courses. The book emphasizes primarily the use of mathematical techniques and mathematical concepts in Physics and does not go into their rigorous developments.

1. Fun with Physics and Mathematics.

2. Scientific Notation, Units, Prefixes, and Dimensions.

3. Algebra: Its Rules and Solving Equations.

4. Geometry: Shapes and Plots.

5. Trigonometry.

6. Vectors in Physics.

7. Differential Calculus.

8. Integral Calculus and Differential Equations.

9. Vector Calculus.

10. How to Be Successful in a Physics Laboratory: Data Analysis, Curve Fitting, Probability, and Statistics.
