Physicsby John D. Cutnell
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:Improving the Game
When it comes to teaching and learning physics, most pedagogical innovations were pioneered in Cutnell and Johnson’s Physics––the number one algebrabased physics text for over a decade. With each new edition of Physics, Cutnell and Johnson have strived to improve the heart of the game––problem solving. Now in their new Seventh Edition, you can expect the same spirit of innovation that has made this text so successful. Here’s how the Seventh Edition continues to improve the game! AMP Examples (Analyzing MultiConcept Problems) These unique new example problems show students how to combine different physics concepts algebraically to solve more difficult problems. AMP examples visually mapout why the different algebraic steps are needed and how to do the steps. GO (Guided Online) Problems in WileyPLUS These new multipart, online tutorialstyle problems lead students through the key steps of solving the problems. Student responses to each problem step are recorded in the grade book, so the instructor can evaluate whether the student really has mastered the material. WileyPLUS WileyPLUS provides the technology needed to create an environment where students can reach their full potential and experience the exhilaration of academic success. WileyPLUS gives students access to a complete online version of the text, study resources and problemsolving tutorials, and immediate feedback and contextsensitive help on assignments and quizzes. WileyPLUS gives instructors homework management tools, lecture presentation resources, an online grade book, and more.

Synopsis:Designed for medical professionals who may struggle with making the leap to conceptual understanding and applying physics, the eighth edition continues to build transferable problemsolving skills. It includes a set of features such as AnalyzingMultipleConcept Problems, Check Your Understanding, Concepts &Calculations, and Concepts at a Glance. This helps the reader to first identify the physics concepts, then associate the appropriate mathematical equations, and finally to work out an algebraic solution. They ll also be able to work high quality problem sets and gain immediate feedback through WileyPLUS, the online problemsolving management system. New Focus on Concept questions are featured in WileyPLUS, offering medical professionals a set of thought provoking conceptual questions as well as calculation problems.
