Book Preface

Built from the ground up for optimal learning, and refined to help students focus on the big picture

Building on the research-proven instructional techniques introduced in Knight’s Physics for Scientists and Engineers, College Physics: A Strategic Approach sets a new standard for algebra-based introductory physics—gaining widespread critical acclaim from professors and students alike.

The text, supplements, and MasteringPhysics® work together to help students see and understand the big picture, gain crucial problem-solving skills and confidence, and better prepare for lecture and their future

Presented by co-author Brian Jones, these engaging videos are assignable through MasteringPhysics and expand on the ideas in the textbook’s chapter previews, giving context, examples, and a chance for students to practice the concepts they are studying via short multiple-choice questions.

With Learning Catalytics, a “bring your own device” student engagement, assessment, and classroom intelligence system, you can:

â–  Assess students in real time, using open-ended tasks to probe student understanding.

â–  Understand immediately where students are and adjust your lecture accordingly.

■ Improve your students’ critical thinking skills.

â–  Access rich analytics to understand student performance.

â–  Add your own questions to make Learning Catalytics fit your course exactly.

â–  Manage student interactions with intelligent grouping and timing.

MasteringPhysics is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment product, designed to improve results by helping students quickly master concepts. Students benefit from self-paced tutorials, featuring specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content to keep them engaged and on track. Robust diagnostics and unrivaled gradebook reporting allow instructors to pinpoint the weaknesses and misconceptions of a student or class to provide timely intervention.

The acclaimed Student Workbook provides straightforward confidence and skill-building exercises—bridging the gap between worked examples in the textbook and end-of-chapter problems. Workbook activities are referenced throughout the text by .
For the Third Edition are Jeopardy questions that ask students to work backwards from equations to physical situations, enhancing their understanding and critical-thinking skills.

Streamlined and focused on the three most important ideas in each chapter, these unique chapter previews are tied to specific learning objectives. In addition, they explicitly mention the one or two most important concepts from past chapters, and finish with a new “Stop to Think” question, giving students a chance to build on their knowledge from previous chapters and integrate it with new content they are about to read

Chapter previews are mirrored by visual chapter summaries, helping students to review and organize what they’ve learned before moving ahead. They consolidate understanding by providing each concept in words, math, and figures, and organizing these into a coherent hierarchy—from General Principles to Applications.

Bringing together key concepts, principles, and equations, this novel feature is designed to highlight connections and differences. More than a summary, they emphasize deeper relations and point out common or contrasting detail
