Details: Product Description For courses in introductory algebra-based physics. Help students learn physics by doing physics College Physics: Explore and Apply allows students to build a deep and robust conceptual understanding of physics by encouraging an active role in the learning process. Through this approach, students build a strong conceptual foundation via observation, analysis, and testing that leads to confidence in applying knowledge to complex situations. The 2nd Edition offers an updated, pedagogically driven design that streamlines the content to help students focus and use the textbook more effectively. As students actively pursue the process of science, they're able to build the foundations for conceptual understanding and develop more sophisticated reasoning and problem-solving skills using features such as redesigned Experiment Tables with new Video Demonstrations and innovative Worked Examples. Mastering™ Physics and the new Pearson eText engage students in active learning and the world of physics. New types of End-of-chapter problems give students the chance to apply what they have learned while the Active Learning Guide (ALG), Instructor Guide, and Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules create a comprehensive learning system that instructors can efficiently adapt to their method of instruction. Also available with Mastering Physics Mastering™ is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools developed to engage students and emulate the office-hour experience, Mastering personalizes learning and often improves results for each student. With Learning Catalytics™ instructors can expand on key concepts and encourage student engagement during lecture through questions answered individually or in pairs and groups. Mastering Physics now provides students with the new Physics Primer for remediation of math skills needed in the college physics course. Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; Mastering Physics does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with Mastering Physics, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID.

She holds a PhD in physics education from Moscow State Pedagogical University and has more than 35 years experience teaching physics. She is a recipient of 2014 Millikan Medal awarded to educators who made significant contributions to teaching physics, and a fellow of the AAPT. Professor Etkina designed and now coordinates one of the largest programs in physics teacher preparation in the United States, conducts professional development for high school and university physics instructors, and participates in reforms to the undergraduate physics courses. In 1993 she developed a system in which students learn physics using processes that mirror scientific practice. That system, called Investigative Science Learning Environment (ISLE) serves as the basis for this textbook. Since 2000, Professors Etkina has conducted over 100 workshops for physics instructors and co-authored the first edition of College Physics and the Active Learning Guide. Professor Etkina is a dedicated teacher and an active researcher who has published over 60 peer-refereed article.
