What level of math does one need for some simple 2D physics?

Recommended Posts

This really depends on how "accurate" you make your simulation. A technically inaccurate collision model can be very convincing and simple to implement.

A good basic understanding of calculus will certainly help, but it isn't strictly necessary. You'll want to look up kinematic equations (I personally don't even know them myself - I always derive them whenever I need them).

I would definitely suggest brushing up on your trigonometry.
