Any Decent Books to Understand Mathematics of Physics?

  1. Oct 17, 2007 #1
    Hey, let me begin by saying that I love science. I have always loved science. But to be prefectly honest, math has never been one of my strong subjects. It's not that I'm bad at math, I can understand most math concepts when given enough time to study them, but all of my math courses go by at 200 MPH and I never get much time to study the material. I come onto this forum and I see people speaking in foreign tounges of tensors and algorithms and I think it would be kind of cool to learn some of that stuff. Anyway, here's my question: are there any good books out there that can help you learn this step by step and that don't assume that you're already an AP Calculus student? I would like to be able to have a book that effectively describes not only the mathematics, but the theory as well.
