Special relativity suffers from the myth that it is difficult. In order to overcome this barrier Dynamics and relativity presents an integrated treatment of classical mechanics and special relativity, by treating classical mechanics as Galilean relativity. This gives students the freedom to formulate a particular problem in one frame of reference and solve it in another, where it takes a simpler form. This strategy, which is central to special relativity, is applied to problems in classical mechanics, thus preparing the tools and thought patterns for a treatment of special relativity.
