A textbook written with instructors and students in mind throughout the entire development process. A fresh approach to the algebra based physics course. Its dual emphasis is on developing both deep conceptual understanding and strong problem-solving skills. College Physics also offers students a focus on real-life biological applications to illustrate why physics is important to students' future fields of work. With the help of digital partner Sapling Learning, this online homework platform provides extra learning and assessment needs for both you and your students. With automatic grading, an easy to use platform, instructors have the option to track and grade each step of the process, allowing them to see where the class as a whole is improving, or where individual students may need extra help. No two students are alike, so the tools are there to help make each physics experience unique to the user.
