College Physics: A Strategic Approach – Randall Knight, Brian Jones, Stuart Field – 2nd Edition

Description

on the research-proven instructional techniques introduced in ’s for and , the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 30 years, College Physics: A Strategic Approach set a new standard for -based introductory physics€”gaining widespread critical acclaim from professors and alike.

For the Second Edition, Randy Knight, Brian Jones, and Stuart Field continue to apply the best results from educational research and refine and tailor them for this course and the particular needs of its students.

New pedagogical features (Chapter Previews, Integrated Examples, and Part Summary problems) and fine-tuned and streamlined content take the hallmarks of the First Edition€”exceptionally effective conceptual explanation and problem-solving instruction–to a new level. More than any other .
