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.
· Active learning exercises integrated throughout: Case Studies, Stop & Think, On-the-Spot Activities, etc.
· Numerous worked-out Examples, many of which have expanded, interactive web versions in which students may participate.
· Emphasis on conceptual understanding as the key to quantitative problem solving.
· Careful attention to use of language, story line, visual imagery, and active reflection as means to student understanding.
· Text supported by extensive author-developed web-based interactive exercises.
· WileyPLUS Plus.
· Student-friendly illustrations and design.
· End-of-chapter problem sets that evaluate both qualitative and quantitative understanding.
