--------------------------------------------------------------

Building on the research-proven instructional techniques introduced in Knight’s P hysics 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.

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.

This program presents an unparalleled teaching and learning experience, uniquely effective and integrated.

  • Personalize learning with MasteringPhysics: MasteringPhysics provides students with engaging experiences that coach them through physics with specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content.
  • Prepare for lecture: Prepare students for lecture with innovative and engaging media tools, tailored carefully to reinforce the textbook.
  • Understand the big picture: Enable students to understand the connections between topics, the real-world context, and the overarching themes, skills, and principles of physics using refined and expanded learning tools.
  • Develop problem-solving skills: Equip students with problem-solving tactics and strategies through expanded guidance and practice in the text and online in MasteringPhysics.
  • Foster skills for the MCAT: Gear students up for the new MCAT with enhanced life-science and biomedical applications in the text and problems, and increased emphasis on reasoning with real-world situations and data.

From the Back Cover:

Building on the results of an extensive NSF-funded educational research program and detailed input from an unprecedented 4,500 students and 250 instructors, Randy Knight and Addison-Wesley published Physics for Scientists and Engineers in 2003. Already the most widely adopted new physics text published in more than 30 years, this book has attracted widespread critical acclaim. In College Physics: A Strategic Approach, Randy Knight is joined by Brian Jones and Stuart Field to carefully apply the best solutions from educational research to the algebra-based introductory physics course. Built from the ground up on a wealth of research into how readers learn physics and how they can be taught more effectively, College Physics leads readers to more 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 the world around them. Optics: Wave Optics, Ray Optics, Optical Instruments. Electricity And Magnetism, Electric Forces and Fields, Electrical Potential, Current and Resistance, Circuits, Magnetic Fields and Forces, Electromagnetic Induction and Electromagnetic Waves, AC Circuits. Modern Physics, Relativity, Quantum Physics, Atoms and Molecules, Nuclear Physics. For all readers interested in algebra-based college physics.

About the Author:

Randy Knight has taught introductory physics for 25 years at Ohio State University and California Polytechnic University, where he is currently Professor of Physics and Director of the Minor in Environmental Studies. Randy received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley and 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 and this book. Randy's research interests are in the field of lasers and spectroscopy. 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 seven cats.
