I never really had much math back ground and I was lucky I passed high school math. I was in the hospital a lot, I think my teacher felt sorry for me and gave me a passing grade, so I could get my HS diploma.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I decided to go to college and I took my placement tests and they placed me in remedial math. I’ve gone through all of the remedial math courses, college Algebra I & II, trig, (low A’s/High B’s, I spent hours studying) and I will be taking Calculus & Analytic Geometry next fall.

My question is this: would it make sense to take an intro Physics course at my college before I take the Calculus I class? I have absolutely no physics knowledge, unless you count d=rt from my Algebra courses. :)

Obviously I meet the Prereq for Calculus I at my college, but I was thinking maybe some sort of intro to physics might be helpful.

I’m a slow learner, but once I understand something I understand it. I was thinking some type of background in a different math area other than your normal math might be helpful.

Thanks
