9781292078878: Principles & Practice of Physics, Global Edition

Putting physics first: Based on his storied research and teaching, Eric Mazur’s Principles & Practice of Physics Volume 1 (chapters 1-21)1/e builds an understanding of physics that is both thorough and accessible. Unique organization and pedagogy allow you to develop a true conceptual understanding of physics alongside the quantitative skills needed in the course.

  • New learning architecture: The book is structured to help you learn physics in an organized way that encourages comprehension and reduces distraction.
  • Physics on a contemporary foundation: Traditional texts delay the introduction of ideas that we now see as unifying and foundational. This text builds physics on those unifying foundations, helping you to develop an understanding that is stronger, deeper, and fundamentally simpler.
  • Research-based instruction: This text uses a range of research-based instructional techniques to teach physics in the most effective manner possible. The result is a groundbreaking book that puts physics first, thereby making it more accessible to you to learn. MasteringPhysics® works with the text to create a learning program that enables you to learn both in and out of the classroom.
