**I'm highly interested in textbooks with different tasks and equations to solve, so I came here for your help.**All your advices are appreciated.

P.S. I prefer using mobile resources such as eBooks, PDF files etc.

Maybe they can provide you with some keywords for a better search on the internet.

In the US where I am, most students in 9th grade have studied only some elementary algebra, and no trigonometry or calculus. Most students don't start studying physics until 11th or 12th grade, when they have studied sufficient mathematics for an algebra/trig level course, or a calculus level course. It would help if you tell us how much mathematics you're studied. That is more meaningful than your current grade level.9th Grade Physics resources

I am a mathematician rather thn a physicist, but I like this little book that helps understand the ideas of physics with very little math. Thinking Physics, by Lewis Carroll Epstein.

My mathematics level is a bit better than intermediate algebra (but I might be wrong). Sorry but are you sure that usually students don't start studying physics until grade 11 or 12?In the US where I am, most students in 9th grade have studied only some elementary algebra, and no trigonometry or calculus.

Yes, anything short of this is considered superficial...

I would advice you to continue learning more mathematics, until you are at the beginning Calculus level. Then you can start learning classical mechanics. Make sure that you build a strong foundation.

Have a look at Serge Lang: Basic Mathematics.

This is a pre-calculus book. It reviews from beginning algebra to pre-cal.

Did you have a study of Geometry, that covered proofs?

If not, Moise/Downs: Geometry. I like this book, one of my favorite. No bs real mathematics, but carefully written.

You can also try Harold Jacobs: Geometry. The first and second edition are the ones to purchase. Latter editions ruined a good book.

For Trigonometry. You can buy a run of the mill old edition of any trig based book...

You do need to learn more math tho, because if you could learn some physics. Then, it would be watered down, some oversimplifications that are plain wrong, and may create "bad habits" when trying to learn "real" physics.

If these are too easy go to you school library and see what you can find or ask the physics teacher for advice. He/she won't bite (at least not usually). I started physics by being interested in electronics with nothing but Ohm;s law for DC circuits to work with and didn't find it too difficult to move up to AC circuits and radio. You needn't be too formal and you can jump around and start asking questions like what is this all about, what is it used for, or how do they explain this or that? .It will all straighten out if you are conscientious.

Of course learn as much math as you go. The physics might help your math and the math will help your physics. So get your feet wet
