Description:

PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS reveals the beauty and simplicity of physics while highlighting its essential role in other disciplines, from engineering to medicine. This proven text features the Serway hallmarks of concise writing, carefully thought-out problem sets, world class worked examples, and leading-edge educational pedagogy. With the Seventh Edition, authors Raymond A. Serway and John W. Jewett, Jr. build upon this strong foundation by carrying that high standard to the book's carefully integrated technology package, perfectly tailored to support any course design. All end-of-chapter problems, worked examples, and quick quizzes are available in Enhanced WebAssign (with hints and feedback formulated to foster student learning), allowing instructors to securely create and administer homework assignments in an interactive online environment. For instructors utilizing classroom response technology, a complete suite of PowerPoint-formatted questions designed to support all levels of users, from amateur through advanced, is available to support the "clicker" software of your choosing. The result is the most complete course solution you will find; and one that is scalable to meet your and your students' unique needs.

John W. Jewett, Jr., earned his undergraduate degree in physics at Drexel University and his doctorate at Ohio State University, specializing in optical and magnetic properties of condensed matter. Dr. Jewett began his academic career at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, where he taught from 1974 to 1984. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Physics at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Through his teaching career, Dr. Jewett has been active in promoting science education. In addition to receiving four National Science Foundation grants, he helped found and direct the Southern California Area Modern Physics Institute (SCAMPI) and Science IMPACT (Institute for Modern Pedagogy and Creative Teaching). Dr. Jewett's honors include the Stockton Merit Award at Richard Stockton College in 1980, selection as Outstanding Professor at California State Polytechnic University for 1991-1992, and the Excellence in Undergraduate Physics Teaching Award from the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) in 1998. In 2010, he received an Alumni Lifetime Achievement Award from Drexel University in recognition of his contributions in physics education. He has given over 100 presentations both domestically and abroad, including multiple presentations at national meetings of the AAPT. Dr. Jewett is the author of THE WORLD OF PHYSICS: MYSTERIES, MAGIC, AND MYTH, which provides many connections between physics and everyday experiences. In addition to his work on PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, he is the coauthor for PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Fifth Edition, as well as GLOBAL ISSUES, a four-volume set of instruction manuals in integrated science for high school. Dr. Jewett enjoys playing keyboard with his all-physicist band, traveling, and collecting antique quack medical devices that can be used as demonstration apparatus in physics lectures. Most importantly, he relishes spending time with his wife Lisa and their children and grandchildren.

Raymond A. Serway is Physics Professor Emeritus at James Madison University, Virginia.
