Algebra/trigonometry based physics

  1. Sep 22, 2011 #1
    so im taking a algebra/trigonometry based physics course
    at first i thought this class wouldn't be too difficult but i underestimated it
    anyways the class doesn't use a textbook, althought they do recommend physics 4th edition by james s walker, but the book costs 150 at my school and i dont have the money for that. we use these packets or modules the professor makes us buy from the bookstore at my school but i feel like these packets aren't helping me in understanding the physics we've covered so far
    so far we've only gone through 1 dimensional and 2 dimensional kinematics/motion, and we just started forces
    does anyone know any only free online physics books i can download or useful websites
    i really just want something to use as a reference and study, instead of the packets

    I would get anything the professor recommends. In my experience, these packets usually help a lot for tests. As for free Alg based Physics texts, try this:
