For the last few months I have been fascinated with Physics. I taught myself the basic, non-calculus based ,newtonian concepts. In Math class, I would always study my notes instead of physically solve the math. That is why I never really enjoyed it before.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now that I actually doing the problems on my own, I am starting to enjoy it alot. I am amazed how Mathematics can describe the physical world we live in with such elegance. I am a senior in high school and have taught myself Trigonometry and am currently learning Calculus (I do not have a lot of work to do outside of high school so I can devote that time to studying).

However, how much math should I learn before I will be able to understand college level Physics? Specifically, would Calculus suffice or should I learn Differential Equations(Calculus III) and Linear Algebra as well? Any other tips and/or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
