This book is designed to help readers get up to speed quickly on the mathematical concepts and tools needed to solve basic physics problems. Instead of a rigorous development of the concepts of mathematics (as is found in a typical math book), it describes the various mathematical concepts and tools and their direct use in physics. Almost all sections end with worked-out examples and exercises taken directly from basic physics.

Algebra: Dealing with Numbers and Equations in Physics. Trigonometry: A Powerful Tool to Solve-Real-World Problems. Geometry: Dealing with Shapes and Plots. Calculus: A Way of Probing the Changing World. Vectors: Tracking the Direction of a Change. Probability and Statistics: Analysis of Data and Predicting Future from the Present.

For anyone needing a quick review of math for physics applications.
