Author Biography

Paul Hewitt pioneered the conceptual approach to teaching at City College of San Francisco, with guest spots at 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 his physics course for 20 years at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, which honored him with its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000. His books are translated in 12 languages and used worldwide.
