New to physics

  1. Oct 12, 2015 #1
    Hi everyone. Well, I'm new to this forum and not to mention new to physics as well. I'm pretty sure this question has been asked before. I would like to know where to begin in physics. At first I became interested in the subject and decided to pick up Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time' and Brian Cox's 'Why Does E=MC2'. After reading the 2, I thought to myself "Wow! This is better than I thought!" But now I want to get deeper into physics. I know I should build a solid foundation in math too. I've decided to start working from algebra and up (I've only taken math up too geometry in high school, unfortunately). I'd like some suggestions on how to get started. I know it's not going to be easy, but I want to go little by little so I don't get discouraged. So help me out please? Thanks

    Algebra 2 and "Mathematical Analysis", and whatever Physics course is offered, while still in high school. Be willing to repeat any of this when you start at college; you would only learn them better at the very least.
