Wouldn't it be great if there were an introductory physics book that actually made the subject interesting? Finally, with Head First Physics, there is. This unusual book takes the stress out of learning introductory physics by providing a fun and engaging experience, especially for students who "just don't get it." Why unusual? Head First Physics offers a format that's rich in visuals and full of activities, including pictures, illustrations, puzzles, stories, and quizzes. It's a very playful, mixed-media style proven to stimulate learning and retention. One look will convince you: This isn't mere theory, this is physics brought to life through real-world scenarios, simple experiments, and hypothetical projects. You'll quickly discover that physics isn't a dry subject. It's all about the world we live in, encompassing everything from bungee jumping to wireless networks. This book: Satisfies the requirements for passing the College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) Physics B Exam Introduces principles so you can use them for problem solving, not memorization Helps you think like a physicist so you can understand why things really work the way they do Gives you relevant examples so you can fully grasp the principles before moving on to more complex concepts Teaches you how to measure, observe, calculate -- and yes -- how to do the math Covers a full range of principles -- scientific notation, SI units, vectors, motion, momentum conservation, Newton's Laws, energy conservation, weight and mass, gravitation and orbits, fluid mechanics, circular motion and simple harmonic motion, and much more If "Myth Busters" and other TV programs make you curious about our physical world -- or if you're astudent forced to take a physics course -- now you can pursue the subject without the dread of boredom or the fear that it will be over your head. Head First Physics comes to rescue with a fun, engaging, and inspirational way to learn physics!
