## Basics of mathematics

Here you will learn some important concepts of mathematics that will be helpful to understand physics better.

Elon Musk wants to colonize Mars. He needs a lot of money for that. He already has it. But what he really lacks is a bunch of smart people who know a lot about **physics** and like to think outside the box. I am Alexander Fufa*eV*, your master Yoda of physics and on *universaldenker.org* I will make you one of the **best physicists of tomorrow**!

With the **understanding of the laws of physics**, combined with **curiosity**, **creativity** and a few other skills, you will become a universal thinker (Ger: Universaldenker). You will be able to...

- ✅ explain the world
- ✅ quickly learn and understand other natural sciences
- ✅ master math as your most important tool
- ✅ do scientific research
- ✅ shape the future of our species
- ✅ become German Chancellor (like Angela Merkel)
- ✅ fulfill Elon Musk's dream 😎
- ✅ or become like Elon Musk himself (he also studied physics, by the way).

Before you can become the best physicist, you need to learn the **basics of physics**. Go through the physics courses below to acquire the basics.

Here you will learn some important concepts of mathematics that will be helpful to understand physics better.

Here you will learn the meaning of energy, force, momentum, and other physical quantities that you will encounter in all disciplines of physics.

Here you will learn the basics about light as a wave and a ray and how to tame it.

Here you will learn the meaning of charges, electric and magnetic fields, voltage and current.

Here you will learn all about photons, wave functions and the world of the small.

Here you will learn all about time dilation, length contraction and spacetime diagrams.

Great! If you have gone through all the courses, you should now be familiar with the basics of physics. For the next level of knowledge, you must first teach yourself the knowledge of **differential and integral calculus** as well as **vector calculus**.
