You can't learn physics without calculus. You would just be memorizing formulas otherwise. Then you would only be able to solve problems that have already been figured out. It would be like an "artist" who could only paint one picture again and again.
I'm in a college physics course that requires calculus.
"ignore air resistance and friction, my eye. Teach me something I can actually use, and then I might be interested."
Physics uses math to model reality. Some models work better than others. In that sense both are abstract, and both are real: physics is abstract until it accurately describes reality, and math is abstract until it is used to model real situations.
what could be the relation between these two? math is abstract and physics is part of the physical world.
