College Physics free pdf Building on the research-proven instructional techniques introduced in Knight's "Physics for Scientists and Engineers, " the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 30 years, "College Physics: A Strategic Approach" set a new standard for algebra-based introductory physics--gaining widespread critical acclaim from professors and students alike. For the Second Edition, Randy Knight, Brian Jones, and Stuart Field continue to apply the best results from educational research and refine and tailor them for this course and the particular needs of its students. New pedagogical features (Chapter Previews, Integrated Examples, and Part Summary problems) and fine-tuned and streamlined content take the hallmarks of the First Edition--exceptionally effective conceptual explanation and problem-solving instruction-to a new level. More than any other book, College Physics leads you to proficient and long-lasting problem-solving skills, a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts, and a broader picture of the relevance of physics to your chosen career and the world around you. College Physics Technology Update, Second Edition, is accompanied by a significantly more robust MasteringPhysics(R)--the most advanced, educationally effective, and widely used online physics tutorial and homework system in the world. Additionally, more than 100 QR codes appear throughout the textbook, enabling you to use your smartphone or tablet to instantly watch interactive videos about relevant demonstrations or problem-solving strategies. 0321815114 / 9780321815118 College Physics: A Strategic Approach Technology Update with MasteringPhysics(R) Package consists of: 0321636600 / 9780321636607 MasteringPhysics(TM) with Pearson eText Student Access Kit for College Physics: A Strategic Approach 0321815408 / 9780321815408 College Physics: A Strategic Approach Technology Update

About Randall D Knight

Randy Knight has taught introductory physics for over 30 years at Ohio State University and California Polytechnic University, where he is currently Professor of Physics. Randy received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California--Berkeley. He was a post-doctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics before joining the faculty at Ohio State University. It was at Ohio State, under the mentorship of Professor Leonard Jossem, that he began to learn about the research in physics education that, many years later, led to Five Easy Lessons: Strategies for Successful Physics Teaching, Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach, and now to this book. Randy's research interests are in the field of lasers and spectroscopy and he has published over 25 research papers. When he's not in the classroom or in front of a computer, you can find Randy hiking, sea kayaking, playing the piano, or spending time with his wife Sally and their six cats. Brian Jones has won several teaching awards at Colorado State University during his more than 20 years teaching in the Department of Physics. His teaching focus in recent years has been the College Physics class, including writing problems for the MCAT exam and helping students review for this test. Brian is also Director of the Little Shop of Physics, the Department's engaging and effective hands-on outreach program, which has merited coverage in publications ranging from the APS News to People magazine. Brian has been invited to give workshops on techniques of science instruction throughout the United States and internationally, including Belize, Chile, Ethiopia, Azerbaijan, Mexico, and Slovenia. Previously, he taught at Waterford Kamhlaba United World College in Mbabane, Swaziland, and Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. Brian and his wife Carol have dozens of fruit trees and bushes in their yard, including an apple tree that was propagated from a tree in Isaac Newton's garden, and they have traveled and camped in most of the United States. Stuart Field has been interested in science and technology his whole life. While in school he built telescopes, electronic circuits, and computers. After attending Stanford University, he earned a Ph.D. at the University of Chicago, where he studied the properties of materials at ultralow temperatures. After completing a postdoctoral position at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology, he held a faculty position at the University of Michigan. Currently at Colorado State University, Stuart teaches a variety of physics courses, including algebra-based introductory physics, and was an early and enthusiastic adopter of Knight's Physics for Scientists and Engineers. Stuart maintains an active research program in the area of superconductivity. His hob--bies include woodworking- enjoying Colorado's great outdoors- and ice hockey, where he plays goalie for a local team.
