Summary

As the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 50 years, Knight's Physics for Scientists and Engineerswas published to widespread critical acclaim from professors and students. In the Third Edition,Knight builds on the research-proven instructional techniques he introduced in the first and second editions, as well as national data of student performance, to take student learning even further. Knight's unparalleled insight into student learning difficulties, and his impeccably skillful crafting of text and figures at every level - from macro to micro - to address these difficulties, results in a uniquely effective and accessible book, leading you to a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts and more proficient problem-solving skills. For the Third Edition, Knight continues to apply the best results from educational research, and to refine and tailor them for this course. New pedagogical features (Chapter Previews, Challenge Examples, and Data-based Examples), end-of-chapter problem sets enhanced through analysis of national student metadata, fine-tuned and streamlined content, and an even more robust MasteringPhysics®program take the hallmarks of the previous editions- exceptionally effective conceptual explanation and problem-solving instruction- to a new level. 0321736087 / 9780321736086 Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics with MasteringPhysics® Package consists of 0321740904 / 9780321740908 Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach with Modern Physics 0321753046 / 9780321753045 MasteringPhysics® with Pearson eText -- Access Card -- for Physics for Scientists

Author Biography

Randy Knight has taught introductory physics for nearly 30 years at Ohio State University and California Polytechnic University, where he is currently Professor of Physics and Director of the Minor in Environmental Studies. Randy received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley, and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics before joining the faculty at Ohio State University. It was at Ohio State, under the mentorship of Professor Leonard Jossem, that he began to learn about the research in physics education that, many years later, led to Five Easy Lessons: Strategies for Successful Physics Teachingand this book. Randy’s research interests are in the field of lasers and spectroscopy. When he’s not in the classroom or in front of a computer, you can find Randy hiking, sea kayaking, playing the piano, or spending time with his wife Sally and their seven cats.
