Physics (6TH 05 Edition)by John D. Cutnell
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher 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 algebra-based 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 Multi-Concept Problems)
These unique new example problems show students how to combine different physics concepts algebraically to solve more difficult problems. AMP examples visually map-out why the different algebraic steps are needed and how to do the steps.
GO (Guided Online) Problems in WileyPLUS
These new multipart, online tutorial-style 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.
WileyPLUSprovides the technology needed to create an environment where students can reach their full potential and experience the exhilaration of academic success.
WileyPLUSgives studentsaccess to a complete online version of the text, study resources and problem-solving tutorials, and immediate feedback and context-sensitive help on assignments and quizzes.
WileyPLUSgives instructorshomework management tools, lecture presentation resources, an online grade book, and more.
