Built from the ground up on our new understanding of how students learn, Randall Knight's introductory university physics textbook leads students to a deeper understanding of the concepts and more proficient problem-solving skills. This authoritative text provides effective learning strategies and in-depth instruction to better guide students around the misconceptions and preconceptions they often bring to the course. The superior problem-solving pedagogy of Physics for Scientists and Engineers uses a detailed, methodical approach that sequentially builds students' skills and confidence so they are better equipped to tackle more complex problems. Knight combines rigorous quantitative coverage with a descriptive, inductive approach that leads to a deeper student understanding of the core concepts. Pictorial, graphical, algebraic, and descriptive representations for each concept are skillfully combined to provide a resource that students with different learning styles can readily grasp. The research-proven media package features MasteringPhysics, an online student tutorial and assignable homework program that helps students develop problem-solving skills and lets instructors know where their students are having trouble.
