THE PHYSICS TOOLBOX is a "paperback mentor," specifically created to supplement other materials in an introductory physics learning environment. It provides the material critical for success, including an introduction to the nature of physics and science, a look at "what to expect" and "how to succeed," a verbal overview of the concepts you'll learn, and an extensive review of the math you'll need to solve the problems in Physics. Sheila Tobias, a nationally recognized researcher and author on science education issues, writes in her Foreword to The PHYSICS TOOLBOX, "I welcome THE PHYSICS TOOLBOX [because it offers] multiple points of contact, missing links, problem-solving walk-throughs, highways and byways around and into various topics of introductory physics."
