Summary: Building on the results of an extensive NSF-funded educational research program and detailed input from an unprecedented 4,500 students and 250 instructors, Randy Knight and Addison-Wesley published Physics for Scientists and Engineers in 2003. Already the most widely adopted new physics text published in more than 30 years, this book has attracted widespread critical acclaim with instructors and is preferred by 85% ...of their students over other available texts. In College Physics: A Strategic Approach, Randy Knight is joined by Brian Jones and Stuart Field to carefully apply the best solutions from educational research to the algebra-based introductory physics course, and the particular needs of those students.Built from the ground up on a wealth of research into how students learn physics and how they can be taught more effectively, College Physics leads students to more proficient and long-lasting problem-solving skills, a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts, and a broader picture of the relevance of physics to their chosen career and the world around them. In particular, College Physics: BUILDS students' problem-solving abilities and confidence-starting with basic skills and core concepts, using explicit and systematic problem-solving strategies, and carefully progressing to more advanced and wide-ranging problems INTEGRATES relevant examples and interesting topics-drawing from students' majors and the world they live in and carefully woven into the text and worked examples to give students motivation, a means to consolidate their understanding, and a clear context for how physics is valuable to them EXPLICITLY ADDRESSES students' preconceptions, misconceptions, and common stumbling blocks-guiding students to a solid foundational knowledge of connected concepts and to confidence in applying their understanding PROVIDES a highly readable and accessible text-building from familiar and concrete examples, providing a carefully structured learning path, and employing key ideas from educational research into how visual pedagogy can be used to help make physics more accessibleCollege Physics is accompanied by MasteringPhysicsTM-the most advanced, educationally effective, and widely used online physics tutorial and homework system in the world. MasteringPhysicsa provides a next-generation solution for assigning uncompromising quantitative and conceptual online homework, giving each student tutorial help precisely where and when they need it, and evaluating student performance in detail on an individual and class level.All end-of-chapter problems from the text have been tested in MasteringPhysics by hundreds of students, ensuring unprecedented clarity, accuracy and quality.
