Summary

For courses in Algebra-based Physics. Walker's suite of pedagogical tools fosters understanding of physical principles and active involvement in the learning process. Because one-size-fits-all examples do not sufficiently address the needs of students, Walker employs a variety of pedagogical elements, each used where it can contribute most to developing conceptual insight and problem-solving skills.
