Physical Science, Eighth Edition, is a simple introduction, easy to read, but substantial to the fundamental behavior of matter and energy.
It is intended to meet the needs of undergraduate science students who must complete one or more physical science courses. It offers an exceptional and direct writing, complemented with pedagogical tools.
Physical Science presents basic concepts and key ideas in time that provide opportunities for students to learn reasoning skills and a new way of thinking about their environment. No previous work in science is assumed.
The text offers students complete coverage of the physical sciences with a level of explanation and details for all students.
The sequence of chapters in Physical Science is flexible, and the instructor can determine the sequence of topics and depth of coverage as needed. Materials are also available to support a conceptual approach or conceptual approach and problem solving combined. With laboratory studies, the text contains enough material for the instructor to select a sequence for a two-semester course. It can also serve as a semester text of physics and chemistry.
