Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Physics by Inquiry An introduction to Physics and the Physical Sciences Physical by Inquiry is the product of more than 20 years of research and teaching experience. Developed by the Physics Education Group at the University of Washington, these laboratory-based modules have been extensively tested in the classroom. Volumes I and II provide a step-by-step introduction to fundamental concepts and basic scientific reasoning skills essential to the physical sciences. Volume III, currently in preparation, extends this same approach to additional topics in the standard introductory physics course. Physics by Inquiry has been successfully used:
  • to prepare preservice and inservice K-12 teachers to teach science as a process of inquiry
  • to help underprepared students succeed in the mainstream science courses that are the gateway to science-related careers.
  • to provide liberal arts students with direct experience in the scientific process, thus establishing a solid foundation for scientific literacy.

Book News Annotation:

The first volume of a two-volume set providing an introduction to basic scientific reasoning skills essential to the physical sciences. The aim is to encourage students to think rather than to provide all the information contained in conventional texts. Modules feature narrative, experiments, problems, and exercises on properties of matter, heat, light, magnets, and astronomy. Useful to prepare K-12 teachers to teach science, help underprepared students, and provide liberal arts students with direct experience in the scientific process.

Synopsis:

These volumes consist of a set of interactive based modules that offer a step-by-step introduction to physics and the physical sciences. Through an in-depth study of a few fundamental concepts, readers develop critical scientific reasoning skills. Volume 1 introduces basic physical ideas and includes topics which represent the essential background for the study of physical sciences. Volume 2 extends coverage of several subjects treated in the first volume and introduces additional important topics.
