Built from the ground up for optimal learning; 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 class and their future.
For the Third Edition, Randy Knight, Brian Jones, and Stuart Field have incorporated student feedback and research to strengthen their focus on student learning, and to apply the best results from educational research and extensive user feedback and metadata.
The program is fully correlated to the new College Board’s AP® Physics 1 and AP® Physics 2 Curriculum Framework and is supported by a wealth of teacher and student materials, including MasteringPhysics®, the most effective and widely used online homework, tutorial, and assessment system available.
