Maths for Physics

The following are some videos I will gradually add to get you up to speed with the basic maths skills required for Physics at any level at high school. The examples are primarily physics examples, though they will occasionally revert to more pure maths examples for simplicity and as an easier starting place.

Rearranging Equations

Shifting bits to the other side

Removing coefficients (numbers in front of variables)

Formula triangles

Shifting square and square roots



Parts of a right angled triangle


Formula triangles with trigonometry

The inverse of Sin, Cos, Tan



Finding the long side

Finding a shorter side


Graphing and More
