Product Description Key Benefit: For Introductory Calculus-based Physics Courses Putting physics first Based on his storied research and teaching, Eric Mazur’s Principles & Practice of Physics 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. This program provides a better teaching and learning experience for you. Here’s how: Personalize learning with MasteringPhysics: MasteringPhysics provides you with engaging experiences that coach them through physics with specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content. Build an integrated, conceptual understanding of physics: Gain a deeper understanding of the unified laws that govern our physical world through the innovative chapter structure and pioneering table of contents. Encourage informed problem solving: The separate Practice Volume empowers you to reason more effectively and better solve problems. Key Topics: Foundations, Motion in One Dimension, Acceleration, Momentum, Energy, Principle of Relativity, Interactions Force, Work, Motion in a Plane, Motion in a Circle, Torque, Gravity, Special Relativity, Periodic Motion, Waves in One Dimension, Waves in Two and Three Dimensions, Fluids, Entropy, Energy Transferred Thermally, Degradation of Energy Electric Interactions, The Electric Field, Gauss’s Law, Work and Energy in Electrostatics, Charge Separation and Storage,Magnetic Interactions, Magnetic Fields of Charged Particles in Motion, Changing Magnetic Fields, Changing Electric Fields, Electric Circuits, Electronics, Optics, Wave and Particle Optics Market: Intended for those who want to gain a basic knowledge of physics. About the Author Eric Mazur is the Balkanski Professor of Physics and Applied Physics at Harvard University and Area Dean of Applied Physics. As an internationally recognized scientist and researcher, he leads a vigorous research program in optical physics and supervises one of the largest research groups in the Physics Department at Harvard University. Eric Mazur is author or co-author of over 250 scientific publications and holds two dozen patents. He has also written on education and is the author of Peer Instruction: A User’s Manual (Prentice Hall, 1997), a book that explains how to teach large lecture classes interactively. In 2006, he helped produce the award-winning DVD Interactive Teaching. He is the founder of Learning Catalytics, a platform for promoting interactive learning in the classroom, which is available in MasteringPhysics ®.
