Summary

KEY MESSAGE: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 publishedPhysics for Scientists and Engineersin 2003. Already the most widely adopted new physics text published in more than 30 years, this book has attracted widespread critical acclaim. InCollege 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. Built from the ground up on a wealth of research into how readers learn physics and how they can be taught more effectively,College Physicsleads readers 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 the world around them. Force and Motion: Concepts of Motion and Mathematical Background, Motion in One Dimension, Vectors and Motion in Two Dimensions, Forces and Newtonrs"s Laws of Motion, Applying Newtonrs"s Laws, Circular Motion, Orbits, and Gravity, Rotational Motion, Equilibrium and Elasticity. Conservation Laws: Momentum, Energy and Work, Using Energy. Properties of Matter: Thermal Properties Of Matter, Fluids. Oscillations and Waves: Oscillations, Traveling Waves and Sound, Superposition and Standing Waves. For all readers interested in algebra-based college physics.
