I refuse to do poorly in college physics. I ask you all for help. The way physics is taught where I go, has an hour of lecture and five hours of "discussion labs" with TAs. There is no textbook. We have block notes that don't provide much material. I learn off of handouts. Lecture is pointless, we basically take a quiz and leave every week. He lectures so fast like we don't need to pay attention to detail. He assumes we know everything. He assumes we took high school physics. Well, I didn't. Now I am frustrated and need a great textbook or guide. This is a conceptual physics class. We mostly graph things or draw representations. A book with that sort of thing, how to graph vectors, acceleration, velocity, forces, etc is what I am looking for. Please can you all recommend a textbook that addresses conceptual physics graphically?
