A Handbook of Mathematical Methods and Problem-Solving Tools for Introductory Physics

Joshua F Whitney, Heather M Whitney


This is a companion textbook for an introductory course in physics. It aims to link the theories and models that students learn in class with practical problem-solving techniques. In other words, it should address the common complaint that "I understand the concepts but I can't do the homework or tests". The fundamentals of introductory physics courses are addressed in simple and concise terms, with emphasis on how the fundamental concepts and equations should be used to solve physics problems.
