Summary

In the latest edition of Engineering Mechanics, Meriam and Kraige deliver a uniquely powerful learning solution: a sound conceptual foundation for solving mechanics problems that is the hallmark of the Meriam text. The new edition offers easy-to-use tools and resources to drive positive outcomes/success. Most notably, it retains the hallmark of the Meriam texts by teaching realistic engineering problem solving without sacrificing rigor. Other features include easy-to-use assessment tools to create effective learning pathways through the text, immediate feedback and remediation, along with problem solving practice to help develop confidence and take control. The text seamlessly integrates additional examples and practice exercises that are crafted to bridge the gap between a conceptual grasp from lectures and the textbook to the solution of homework and exam problems. Presentation resources, automated scoring, diagnostic reporting and tools enable consistent delivery.
