For courses in calculus-based physics. The benchmark for clarity and rigor, influenced by the latest in education research. Since its first edition, University Physics has been revered for its emphasis on fundamental principles and how to apply them. This text is known for its clear and thorough narrative, as well as its uniquely broad, deep, and thoughtful sets of worked examples that provide students with key tools for developing both conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills. The Fourteenth Edition improves the defining features of the text while adding new features influenced by education research to teach the skills needed by today’s students. A focus on visual learning, new problem types, and pedagogy informed by MasteringPhysics metadata headline the improvements designed to create the best learning resource for physics students. MasteringPhysics(R) is not included. Students, if MasteringPhysics is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. MasteringPhysics should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MasteringPhysics is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Interactive, self-paced tutorials provide individualized coaching to help students stay on track. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts.
The new 15th Edition of University Physics with Modern Physics, now in SI Units, draws on insights from several users to help students see patterns and make connections between problem types. Students learn to recognise when to use similar steps in solving the same problem type and develop an understanding for problem solving approaches, rather than simply plugging values into an equation.
This edition addresses students’ tendency to focus on the objects and situations posed in a problem, rather than recognising the underlying principle or the problem type. New Key Concept statements identify the main idea used in examples to help students recognise the underlying concepts and strategy. New Key Example Variation Problems within new Guided Practice sections group problems by type so students recognise when problems can be solved in similar ways, regardless of wording or numbers.
