Glencoe Physics: Principles & Problems – McGraw-Hill Education – Student Edition


Give your class new momentum with conceptual understanding, valuable math support, and problem-solving activities. Although not -based, Glencoe Physics: Principles & Problems (Copyright 2005) provides a strong foundation for beginning students of high school or physics. A lot of basic items that are taken for granted by other are explained in simple english.

For example, the three-lined equal sign ≡ is explained on page 44, along with the difference between average velocity and average speed. are presented and explained. The equations have subscripts that are relevant to the meaning of the situation. The example begin with a problem statement and a detailed procedure for solving it, step-by-step.
