Pre-calculus or calculus before physics?

  1. Feb 4, 2010 #1
    I,m self-studying math and physics as my hobby.
    Should I finish pre-calculus and calculus before I start basic physics or I can learn them simultaneously?

    you can learn them simultaneously. But you will have a deeper understanding of physics if you have a calculus base. So if you are doing this as a personal hobby, i think it will be more rewarding for you if you do the calculus first.

    This is exactly my feeling after 2 weeks of this stuff. I wish it would have said this or maybe asked someone before i signed up.

    Personally, I'm just finishing My first year of physics and am free studying calculus so that I can learn quantam physic equations (I'm free studying that oto, the class is basic, I'm in 10th grade)
