Description:

An Introduction to Physical Sciencepresents a survey of the physical sciencesphysics, chemistry, astronomy, meteorology, and geologyfor non-science majors. Topics are treated both descriptively and quantitatively, providing flexibility for instructors who wish to emphasize a highly descriptive approach, a highly quantitative approach, or anything in between. The Eleventh Edition includes content and features that help students better visualize concepts, master basic math, and practice problem solving. In addition, a dynamic technology package accompanies the text. A Blackboard/WebCT course, along with HM ClassPrep and HM Testing resources, provide course management tools that help make class preparation and assessment more efficient and effective. The Eleventh Edition is available in both hardcover andat a reduced price paperback versions, giving students flexible options to meet their needs. The end-of-chapter material featuresVisual Connectionsthat challenge students to demonstrate relationships between key concepts by asking them to create a diagram or concept map.Matching Questionstest students' ability to match appropriate statements with key terms.Fill-in-the-Blank QuestionsandMultiple Choice Questionsare keyed to the appropriate chapter section. A review of basic math is available on the Online Study Center. With step-by-step tutorials of basic math concepts, the review enables students to quickly attain the level of competency necessary for success in the course. The Blackboard/WebCT course contains a transition guide from the Tenth Edition to the Eleventh Edition, PowerPoint slides with lecture notes and art from the text, and support for the lab manual. The leading three astronomy chapters have been rearranged for better continuity and more even coverage. They are now in this order: Chapter 15, "Place and Time," Chapter 16, "The Solar System," and Chapter 17." Located at the end of each chapter,On the Webexercises require students to use Internet resources to research topics, explore concepts, and solve problems. Follow-up links have been updated on the Student Web Site.
