The Wiley Advantage

  • Can be utilized in either Algebra or Calculus-based courses and is available either as a standalone text or as a supplement for books like Cutnell & Johnson PHYSICS, or Halliday, Resnick, & Walker FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSICS.
  • Math level is Algebra & Trigonometry; however, a few examples require the use of integration and differentiation.
  • Unlike competing titles, Tuszynski offers both a wealth of engaging biomedical applications as well as quantitative problem-solving.
  • The quantitative problem-solving is presented in the form of worked examples and homework problems.
  • The standard organization facilitates the integration of the material into most introductory courses.
