Description

Introductory Physics goes beyond the typical introductory text by assuming a basic understanding among readers and engaging them in dialogue about their own prior conceptions and strategies. The book explores the process of physical sense-making that underlies good problem solving and emphasizes a conceptual understanding as the key to quantitative problem solving. Careful attention is placed on the use of language, story line, visual imagery, and active reflection.
