Principles of Physics a Calculus-Based Text – Raymond A. Serway – 4th Edition


This successful text was the first to address the latest trends in teaching and learning as suggested by an introduction to and its guidelines. Principles of presents a concise approach to traditional subjects, an early introduction to modern physics, the of Physical Education pedagogies into education, as well as the integration of current issues throughout the text.

This review of early physics also contains a media integration with the text, like no other, through Physics Now assessment, a tutorial and course system.
