Hello everyone; hopefully the title was sufficiently descriptive. Essentially, I'm trying to learn physics. I've been looking through various college physics textbooks, and while some of the problems make sense to me, most of them don't, and I believe it is because I lack the foundation in the math. In fact, I often lack the foundation even in the algebra. I had a pretty poor math education throughout high school, which doesn't help matters. Anyways, I need suggestions for textbooks I should read to get a good ground in the math foundation before moving on to the physics. What algebra textbooks should I start with? Should I move on from reading algebra to trigonometry to calculus, or is there some specific sequence that is recommended? To give you an idea, I'm talking about the math you need to know for a typical first-year college physics course, and what textbooks you can find it in.
