Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Physics by Inquiry An introduction to Physics and the Physical Sciences Physics 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: <UL><LI>to prepare preservice and inservice K-12 teachers to teach science as a process of inquiry<LI>to help underprepared students succeed in the mainstream science courses that are the gateway to science-related careers.<LI>to provide liberal arts students with direct experience in the scientific process, thus establishing a solid foundation for scientific literacy.</UL>

Book News Annotation:

Contains laboratory-based modules featuring narrative, experiments, exercises, and problems on electric circuits, electromagnets, optics, kinematics, and astronomy, offering an introduction to physics and the physical sciences through the study of simple physical systems and their interactions, and emphasizing the development of scientific reasoning. Volumes I and II will be followed by a third volume extending the approach to topics in the standard physics course.
