Mathematical Preparation for General Physics.
Marion, Jerry B.; Davidson, Ronald C.
This textbook is intended to provide the requisite mathematical background for an introductory college course in general physics. The topics covered are: Numbers and Units; Experimental Error; Basic Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry; Functions and Graphs; Vectors; The Slide Rule; and Physical Units and Conversions. Where possible, mathematical ideas are introduced via physical examples (mostly from mechanics), and the emphasis is on operational techniques rather than mathematical rigor. There are numerous worked examples as well as exercises with answers provided. (MM)
