Tunneling Through the Math Barrier

Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 187

My goal with this book is to provide some kind of bridge for mathematics between the high-school-level and college-level for physics students. My focus is to help modify your thinking of how math is used, rather than just pummel you with algorithms for you to memorize without giving you the proper context for such algorithms.
