This is an introductory text intended for a one-year introductory course of the type typically taken by biology majors. Algebra and trig are used, and there are optional calculus-based sections. (There is an older version of the book, split into six volumes: Newtonian Physics, Conservation Laws, Vibrations and Waves, Electricity and Magnetism, Optics, and The Modern Revolution in Physics. The old version is still available in print and for downloading from lulu.com.)
