A pre-med student taking physics needs help!

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'll be taking an algebra based physics class next semester and I've been wondering a few things. The last trig class I've taken was in the fall semester of my senior year in high school and the last real MATH heavy class that I've taken, precalculus, was over a year and a half ago. Are there any mathematical concepts that I should brush up on before I start class in the fall?

Algebra based physics is quite simple. Some of the only things you really need to know (Maybe) is the quadratic formula. So just practice factoring, completing the square, quadratic formula. There isn't all that much to it.


Good luck

Brush up on your algebra and trigonometry. Also, I don't know how much you know about vectors or even if your course will cover such a topic but I'd encourage you to prepare yourself for their presence. Do as much review as you can before the semester and you should be alright. Good luck.
