Summary

For courses in integrated science and physical science.

 

Emphasize concepts and enable students to connect ideas across the sciences

Thebest-selling Conceptual Integrated Science provides an engaging overview of physics, chemistry, earth science, astronomy, and biology at a level appropriate for non-science students. Hewitt’s engaging narrative emphasizes unifying  concepts across physical and life sciences through a clear, friendly writing style, and fun, relevant examples that motivate students.

 

The 3rd Edition expands on its theme of integration and deepens connections between the sciences with new Integrated Science spreads added at the end of each part. Modern references in the updated Technology boxes and new contemporary applications add relevance and help to connect science with students’ everyday lives. Enhanced End-of-Chapter problems engage students with interactive digital features accessible in the Pearson eText and guide them with wrong-answer feedback, where and when they need it. The eText features Hewitt’s video tutorials that play inline, new Check Yourself from the text presented as a hide/reveal interactive feature, and multiple-choice quizzes at the end of each chapter.


Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with Mastering A&P:


Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class – motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.

If your instructor has assigned Pearson eText as your main course material, search for:

0135626560 / 9780135626566 Pearson eText Conceptual Integrated Science -- Access Card, 3/e

OR
0135626579 / 9780135626573 Pearson eText Conceptual Integrated Science -- Instant Access, 3/e


Also available with Mastering Physics

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.Now providing a more interactive and seamlessly integrated experience, the eText provides embedded links to video tutorials and end-of-chapter questions within Mastering Physics.


 

If you would like to purchase both the physical text and Mastering Physics, search for:

Author Biography

Paul G. Hewitt

Former silver-medal boxing champion, sign painter, uranium prospector, and soldier, Paul began college at the age of 27, with the help of the GI Bill. He pioneered the conceptual approach to teaching physics at the City College of San Francisco. He has taught as a guest teacher at various middle schools and high schools, the University of California at both the Berkeley and Santa Cruz campuses, and the University of Hawaii at both the Manoa and Hilo campuses. He also taught for 20 years at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, which honored him with its Outstanding Educator Award in 2000. He is the author of Conceptual Physics and a co-author of Conceptual Physical Science and Conceptual Physical Science Explorations (with John Suchocki and Leslie Hewitt Abrams).

 

Suzanne Lyons

Suzanne received her B.A. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley. She earned her M.A. in education and her California teaching credential both from Stanford University. She earned another M.A. degree in Integrated Earth Sciences from California State University Sacramento. Suzanne was editor of Conceptual Physics and other books in the Conceptual series for 16 years and has authored 7 books on physics, hands-on science activities, and other topics in science and education. She has taught science and education courses to students of diverse ages and ability levels, from elementary school through college. She is always interested in developing new ways to teach and to that end, she founded the small business CooperativeGames.com.

 

John A. Suchocki

John is the author of Conceptual Chemistry and coauthor of Conceptual Physical Science. John obtained his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Virginia Commonwealth University where he also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in pharmacology. As a tenured professor at Leeward Community College his interests turned to science education, the development of distance learning programs, and student-centered learning curricula. Currently an adjunct professor at Saint Michael’s College in Vermont, John also produces science multimedia through his company Conceptual Productions. His popular tutorial video lessons, as well as those of his coauthors, are freely available at ConceptualAcademy.com.

 

Jennifer Yeh

Jennifer earned a Ph.D. in integrative biology from the University of Texas, Austin, for her work on frog skeleton evolution. She obtained her B.A. in physics and astronomy from Harvard University. Following her graduate work, Jennifer was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Francisco, where she studied the genetics of breast cancer. Jennifer has taught courses in physics, cell biology, human embryology, vertebrate anatomy, and ecology and evolution. She is the author of various scientific papers as well as the book Endangered Species: Must They Disappear? (Thomson/Gale, © 2002, 2004). Jennifer continues to work on a wide variety of introductory biology materials, including various online materials.
