# Basic Math

From Jonathan Gardner's Physics Notebook

This is basic math you must understand before you can begin to understand Basic Physics.

- Set Theory: Everybody should already have an intuitive grasp of this.
- Logic: You should learn how to manipulate logical statements logically.
- Arithmetic: This is probably the most difficult subject since it is so boring.
- Algebra: How numbers behave, including what symbols mean.
- Geometry: How shapes and figures behave. You can learn here how proofs work.
- Trigonometry: How triangles behave in detail.
- Calculus: Limits, basic derivatives, and integrals.

Until you master these things, you should stick with Pre-Basic Physics.
