Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Understanding Basic Mechanics is a coherent introduction to basic mechanics for an introductory calculus-based physics course for science or engineering students. This innovative approach is comprised of two closely coordinated parts, a Text and a Workbook, that must both be used for student success. The Text presents the basic subject matter, facilitating reference and review. The Workbook actively engages students in their learning to ensure that they have understood what they have read, can interpret it appropriately, and can apply it to diverse situations. It also contains numerous hints and answers. Although available for purchase separately, Wiley makes these two parts available in a cost-saving set for student purchase — Reif: Understanding Basic Mechanics Text & Workbook Set, ISBN 0-471-10337-3.

Synopsis:

An extremely lucid introduction to physics and reasoning methods containing a judicious selection and sequencing of material that enables students to learn without being overwhelmed and acquire important knowledge for future work. Provides detailed instruction of a problem-solving strategy for both quantitative and qualitative problems. Consists of two closely coordinated parts--the text is designed to present basic subject matter as well as facilitate reference and review; the workbook ensures that students have understood what they have read, can interpret it and apply the information to diverse situations.
