Calculus Based Physics, Need Help

  1. Jan 24, 2012 #1
    I am taking my first physics class at school and seem to be having a hard time doing the problems(web assign problems). The course is calculus based which is okay with me because I am in Calc 3. Problem is that I can not find any good Calc based physics resources. My book "Physics for Scientists and Engineers" is not my cup of tea. Anything I find relating to phiscs online is algera based, do you guys have any reosuces, websites, books, or advice for me to understand this subject from a calculus point of view?

    get the physics book by Serway. You can find an older edition online for really cheap.

    The Feynman lectures??

    MIT Opencourseware 8.01. Google it. It has video lectures by the wonderful prof. Lewin, including accompanying practice exams and solutions. Ocw is a life saver for some of the "gateway" undergraduate math and physics courses.

    Webassign is the physics book by serway. I am using it too, not really a big fan of it either.
