I am currently a complete beginner to Mathematica (in fact, to programming in general) I have done adequate research about books for general books on Mathematica, but I would like to find a book that focuses mostly on graphics, animations, demonstrating physics and the like. For example, while on the wolfram website, I saw a demonstration of chaos theory through a double pendulum. I guess what I want the book to focus on is the manipulate function and visual aspects of Mathematica. Thanks. Edit: I'm in 11th grade and next year i will be taking a course about Mathematica, so I'd like to get a head start and get good at graphics to make some nice physics demonstrations. I am familiar with all of calculus included multivariate and vector Calc, and have taken a full year course on linear algebra.
