Pearson; 3rd edition
Building on the research-proven instructional methods presented in Knight's Physics for Scientists and Engineers, the third edition of College Physics: A Strategic Approach (PDF) establishes a new standard for algebra-based introductory physics, and it has received widespread critical acclaim from both science students and science professors. The textbook, MasteringPhysics, and the supplements all work together to help students of physics see and understand the big picture, gain crucial confidence and skills in problem-solving, and better prepare for lecture and their future.
Randall Knight, Stuart Field, and Brian Jones have incorporated student feedback and research into the third edition of their book in order to strengthen their focus on the learning of college students, as well as to apply the best results from educational research and extensive user metadata. This was done in preparation for the publication of the book's third edition.
This program offers a learning and instructing experience that is unparalleled; it is one of a kind, and it is completely integrated.
- Prepare students for the lecture by providing them with innovative and engaging media tools that have been carefully tailored to reinforce the concepts covered in the textbook.
- Develop your ability to solve problems by providing students with expanded problem-solving guidance and practice both in the text and online in MasteringPhysics. This will allow students to acquire problem-solving tactics and strategies.
- Learners at the college level need to be able to grasp the overarching concepts, skills, and principles of physics in order to get a sense of the big picture. The learning tools available to them need to be refined and expanded.
- Prepare students for the new MCAT by incorporating more life-science and biomedical applications into the textbook and problems, as well as placing a greater emphasis on developing the ability to reason with real-world data and scenarios.
- Customize your education with MasteringPhysics, available for purchase separately: College students can benefit from the engaging experiences offered by MasteringPhysics, which guide them through the challenging subject of physics by providing specific feedback on incorrect answers, hints, and a wide variety of educationally useful content.
