Description

Physics continues to build on rich multimedia enhancements that encourage student engagement. ORION, the adaptive study guide, diagnoses student’s strengths and weaknesses, leading them to the specific content and media needed to help them effectively learn. All ORION practice problems have hints and feedback. The course includes 259 short lecture videos, one for each course section, that explain the basic concepts and learning objectives. In addition, 150 Chalkboard problem-solving videos and guided online tutorials along with vector drawing questions enrich WileyPLUS. These features are designed to encourage students to remain within the WileyPLUS environment, as opposed to pursuing the “pay-for-solutions” websites and searching uncurated web content that short circuits and can confuse their learning process.

New to This Edition

- ORION Adaptive Practice: Every student has a different starting point, and adaptive practice provides endless opportunities for practice to effectively prepare for class or quizzes and exams. Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve retention of information better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not. Students begin with a quick, section-level diagnostic to determine their initial level of understanding, and they can use the dashboard and quick reports to see what topics they know and don’t know. This new course edition includes more feedback to ORION questions.

Lecture Videos: 259 short section lecture video animations introduce each online course section by explaining the basic concepts and learning objectives. Most also include embedded questions for student engagement. Faculty will find these videos and questions ideal for pre-lecture assignment material for those who are flipping the classroom.

- Group Problems: Group problems added to each section are useful for in-class group activities.

 - Biological Application Examples: Included “The Physics of …” bio-inspired examples are similar to what premed  students will encounter in the “Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems” passages section of the MCAT.
