Books a la Carte are unbound, three-hole-punch versions of the textbook. This lower cost option is easy to transport and comes with same access code or media that would be packaged with the bound book.
Elegant, engaging, exacting, and concise, Giancoli’s Physics: Principles with Applications with MasteringPhysics ®, Seventh Edition, helps students view the world through eyes that know physics.
Giancoli’s text is a trusted classic, known for its elegant writing, clear presentation, and quality of content. Starting with concrete observations and experiences students can relate to, the text then moves on to the great generalizations of physics. This approach demonstrates why we believe what we believe and reflects the way science is practiced.
Written with the goal of giving students a thorough understanding of all of the basic concepts of physics, the text uses interesting applications to biology, medicine, architecture, and digital technology to show students how useful physics is in their own everyday lives and in their future professions.

This best-selling introduction to algebra-based physics goes beyond simple numerical problem solving and the application of formulas to challenge readers to explore the basic concepts that are fundamental to understanding physics and to apply physics to their everyday activities and interests (e.g., medicine, physiology, sports, and technology). Covers kinematics in one and two dimensions; vectors; dynamics; circular motion; gravitation; work and energy; linear momentum; rotational motion; bodies in equilibrium; elasticity and fracture; fluids; vibrations and waves; sound; temperature and kinetic theory; heat; and the Laws of Thermodynamics. Provides problem-solving notes; careful hints; problem-solving boxes; highlighted equations; and practice problems. Features photorealistic and 3D art to help readers visualize physics at work. For those in medical, agricultural, technology, and architectural fields needing a review of algebra-based physics.About the Author:
Douglas C. Giancoli obtained his BA in physics (summa cum laude) from UC Berkeley, his MS in physics at MIT, and his PhD in elementary particle physics back at the UC Berkeley. He spent 2 years as a post-doctoral fellow at UC Berkeley's Virus lab developing skills in molecular biology and biophysics. His mentors include Nobel winners Emilio Segre and Donald Glaser. He has taught a wide range of undergraduate courses, traditional as well as innovative ones, and continues to update his textbooks meticulously, seeking ways to better provide an understanding of physics for students. Doug's favorite spare-time activity is the outdoors, especially climbing peaks. He says climbing peaks is like learning physics: it takes effort and the rewards are great.
