Authored by Paul Hewitt, the pioneer of the enormously successful "concepts before computation" approach, Conceptual Physics boosts student success by first building a solid conceptual understanding of physics. Hewitt's 3-step learning approach--explore, develop, and apply--makes physics more accessible for today's students.

Conceptual Physics, Tenth Edition helps readers connect physics to their everyday experiences and the world around them with additional help on solving more mathematical problems. Hewitt's text is famous for engaging readers with analogies and imagery from real-world situations that build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong foundation, readers are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter. Included in the package is the workbook. Mechanics, Properties of Matter, Heat, Sound, Electricity and Magnetism, Light, Atomic and Nuclear Physics, Relativity. For all readers interested in conceptual physics.

Bringing together international research on nature of science (NOS) representations in science textbooks, the unique analyses presented in this volume provides a global perspective on NOS from elementary to college level and discusses the practical implications in various regions across the globe. Contributing authors highlight the similarities and differences in NOS representations and provide recommendations for future science textbooks. This comprehensive analysis is a definitive reference work for the field of science education.

This volume is an attempt to synthesize the understandings we have about reading to learn. Although learning at all ages is addressed, the main focus is on middle and high school classrooms - critical spaces of learning and thinking. One important goal of the book is to encourage practicing teachers to learn to consider their students in new ways - to see them as being influenced by, and as influencing, not just the classroom but the total fabric of the disciplines they are learning. Equally important, this volume is intended to foster further research efforts - from local studies of classrooms by teachers to large-scale studies that produce generalizable understandings about learning from text. Learning From Text Across Conceptual Domains - a result of the editor's and contributors' work with National Reading Research Center - will be of interest to all researchers, graduate students, practicing teachers, and teachers in training who are interested in understanding the issues that are central to improving students learning from text.

From Paul G. Hewitt, author of the market-leading Conceptual Physics, comes his eagerly awaited new text,Conceptual Physics Fundamentals. This briefer, alternative text provides the depth, topic coverage, and features requested by instructors teaching courses that are shorter and that include more quantitative material. The text extends best-selling author Paul Hewitt's proven pedagogical approach, straight-forward learning features, approachable style, and rigorous coverage, while providing superior supplements and instructor and student media. The book develops a solid conceptual understanding of physics, while building students' self-confidence applying their understanding quantitatively.

This text is intended for one-year introductory courses requiring algebra and some trigonometry, but no calculus. College Physics is organized such that topics are introduced conceptually with a steady progression to precise definitions and analytical applications. The analytical aspect (problem solving) is tied back to the conceptual before moving on to another topic. Each introductory chapter, for example, opens with an engaging photograph relevant to the subject of the chapter and interesting applications that are easy for most students to visualize. For manageability the original text is available in three volumes . Original text published by Openstax College (Rice University) www.textbookequity.org
