This section will be updated as the course progresses. You will find here my notes for the lectures that will help you to check for mistakes in your class notes.
Course on basic trigonometry: follow this link (trigonometry)* to go into a web-based course about the basic concepts of trigonometry. You should have a good understanding of basic trigonometry to solve the problems of “College Physics”. This web or related resources (books) will help you to acquire an adequate level to deal with your course.
Course on basic algebra: follow this link (algebra)* to go into a web-based course about the basic concepts of algebra.
*There are many web-based courses with basic mathematic tools that will help you. You can also find very helpful books about basic mathematics in the UCF library.
