https://www.3blue1brown.com has you covered for linear algebra. Now as far as the math needed for physics, I highly suggest Roger Penrose's 'Road to Reality' (https://www.amazon.com/Road-Reality-Complete-Guide-Universe/...). As the reviews say it's not an easy read but what it does provide you with is all the mathematics you're going to need to learn to understand today's physics. The book provides a high-level overview of the mathematics - which is technically complete but so concise that it's difficult to learn from. So use that to take a deeper dive into a mathematical subject. What the book is really providing is a roadmap: you need to understand these concepts from these mathematical disciplines to understand this area of physics and then proceeds with the high-level description of those concepts. Take the deep dive as needed and you'll be amply rewarded.



Covered for linear algebra? Yes those videos have some nice visuals but the material is just scratching the surface.
