Hello everyone(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm attending first year of the danish Gymnasium and do feel seriously mathematically impaired, however i find especially astrophysics very interesting, and would like to know something about it.

It should be said that my mathematical ability is absolutly stretched at the otherwise simple 'y=ax+b'. So i will need some mathematical skill also, i just thought i might aswell take the more interesting approach of astrophysics and learn what mathematics i need, as i discover stuff i dont understand.

Anyway, i've been looking at Brian Greene's 'The Elegant Universe' as it looks like a good

book for starters. I'm also thinking of buying Mike Inglis' 'Astrophysics is easy'.

Do you have any idea as to which books i should read first?. As is probably understood by the thread, i need to start from scratch on this :).

Thanks for listening!
