University Physics with Modern Physics – Wolfgang Bauer, Gary D. Westfall – 2nd Edition


Physics with Modern Physics teaches students the through interesting, timely examples, a and consistent approach to problem solving, and an outstanding suite of tools and exercises. University Physics with Modern Physics weaves exciting, recent physics throughout the text with coverage of the most recent research by the authors and others in areas such as , , and the environment. These contemporary topics are explained in a way that your students will find real, interesting, and motivating.

McGraw-Hill’s Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning that empowers students by continually adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the teacher to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the ’s work. are randomized to prevent sharing of answers and may also have a “multi-step solution” which helps to move the students’ learning along if they experience difficulty.
