about this item
For courses in introductory algebra-based physics.
Help students learn physics by doing physicsCollege Physics: Explore and Applyallows students to build a deep and robust conceptual understanding of physics by encouraging an active role in the learning process. Through this approach, students build a strong conceptual foundation via observation, analysis, and testing that leads to confidence in applying knowledge to complex situations.
The 2nd Edition offers an updated, pedagogically driven design that streamlines the content to help students focus and use the textbook more effectively. As students actively pursue the process of science, they're able to build the foundations for conceptual understanding and develop more sophisticated reasoning and problem-solving skills using features such as redesigned Experiment Tables with new Video Demonstrations and innovative Worked Examples.
Mastering™ Physics and the new Pearson eText engage students in active learning and the world of physics. New types of End-of-chapter problems give students the chance to apply what they have learned while the Active Learning Guide (ALG), Instructor Guide, and Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules create a comprehensive learning system that instructors can efficiently adapt to their method of instruction.
