This successful text was the first to address the latest trends in the market as suggested by the Introductory University Physics Project (IUPP) guidelines. PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS features a concise approach to traditional topics, an early introduction to modern physics, and the integration of contemporary topics throughout the text. In addition to a streamlined presentation, it also encourages analytical reasoning and a conceptual understanding of physics through contemporary applications and critical thinking exercises. This text represents an evolutionary approach (rather than a revolutionary approach).
This third edition contains many new pedagogical features--most notably, a contextual approach to enhance motivation, an increased emphasis on avoiding misconceptions through the inclusion of Pitfall Preventions, and a problem-solving strategy that uses a modeling approach.
