Description: This text contains a running story line about how the current physics "world view" came to be. This story line is divided into nine parts framed by an introductory chapter ("A World View") which puts the approach into context. This approach gives non-science students an appreciation for the laws of nature and physics contribution to that understanding. The new sixth edition uses the latest physics education principles to emphasize conceptual understanding, both in the main narrative and in the accompanying media program. Designed to fit the specific needs of any non-majors physics course, the text is flexible, fully modular and now can be customized to fit any syllabus through Thomson's TextChoice custom solution program. Mathematics is used minimally, but for instructors wishing to incorporate more problem-solving skills and quantitative reasoning, the optional, slightly more detailed, "Problem Solving to accompany Physics: A World View" student supplement reveals more of the beauty and power of mathematics in physics. The new edition includes access to PhysicsNow, a powerful personal student study companion. This interactive online resource uses a series of chapter-specific diagnostics to gauge students' unique study needs, then provides a Personalized Learning Plan that focuses their study time on the concepts they need to review most. Active Figure tutorial simulations provide an opportunity for students to learn through observation, further enhancing conceptual understanding.
