The main objectives of the text are to provide students with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics, and to strengthen their understanding of the concepts and principles through a broad range of interesting applications to the real world. In order to meet these objectives, the authors emphasis is placed on sound physical arguments and discussions of everyday experiences and observations. At the same time, students are motivated through practical examples that demonstrate the role of physics in other disciplines. COLLEGE PHYSICS, Technology Version offers a new complete learning system for the algebra-trig based physics course. The seamless integration of CD-ROM, workbook, and Web site makes it easier for professors and students to incorporate technology-based content into their lectures and studies. The Technology Version of College Physics, Fifth edition consists of: the paperback textbook, the Saunders CORE CONCEPTS IN COLLEGE PHYSICS CD-ROM, the Workbook to accompany the Saunders CORE CONCEPTS IN COLLEGE PHYSICS CD-ROM, and a single CD-ROM containing the textbook version of INTERACTIVE PHYSICSÔ software (developed by MSC Working Knowledge), as well as simulation files by Raymond A. Serway that run on this software. Instructors interested in technology-based education should also consider the three options for on-line homework-CAPA (Computer-assisted Personalized Approach), WebAssign, and University of Texas homework delivery systems.

Raymond A. Serway received his Doctorate at Illinois Institute of Technology and is Professor Emeritus at James Madison University. In 1990, he received the Madison Scholar Award at James Madison University, where he taught for 17 years. Dr. Serway began his teaching career at Clarkson University, where he conducted research and taught from 1967 to 1980. He was the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award at Clarkson University in 1977 and of the Alumni Achievement Award from Utica College in 1985. As Guest Scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland, he worked with K. Alex Müller, 1987 Nobel Prize recipient. Dr. Serway also was a visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, where he collaborated with his mentor and friend, Sam Marshall. Dr. Serway is also the co-author of PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Fourth Edition, PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, Sixth Edition, MODERN PHYSICS, Third Edition, and the high-school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt, Rinehart, & Winston. In addition, Dr. Serway has published more than 40 research papers in the field of condensed matter physics and has given more than 60 presentations at professional meetings. Dr. Serway and his wife Elizabeth enjoy traveling, golfing, fishing, and spending quality time with their four children and six grandchildren.
Jerry S. Faughn earned his doctorate at the University of Mississippi. He is Professor Emeritus and former Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Eastern Kentucky University. He is co-author of a non-mathematical physics text and a physical science text for general education students, and (with Dr. Serway) the high-school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt, Rinehart, & Winston. He has taught courses ranging from the lower division to the graduate level, but his primary interest is in students just beginning to learn physics. He has been director of a number of NSF and state grants, many of which were devoted to the improvement of physics education. He believes that there is no greater calling than to be a teacher and an interpreter of physics for others.
