Help students learn physics by doing physics

College Physics: Explore and Apply allows students to build a deep and robust conceptual understanding of physics by encouraging an active role in the learning process. Through this approach, students build a strong conceptual foundation via observation, analysis, and testing that leads to confidence in applying knowledge to complex situations.

The 2nd Edition offers an updated, pedagogically driven design that streamlines the content to help students focus and use the textbook more effectively. As students actively pursue the process of science, they're able to build the foundations for conceptual understanding and develop more sophisticated reasoning and problem-solving skills using features such as redesigned Experiment Tables with new Video Demonstrations and innovative Worked Examples.

MasteringTM Physics and the new Pearson eText engage students in active learning and the world of physics. New types of End-of-chapter problems give students the chance to apply what they have learned while the Active Learning Guide (ALG), Instructor Guide, and Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules create a comprehensive learning system that instructors can efficiently adapt to their method of instruction.

Personalize learning with Mastering Physics

Mastering™ is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools developed to engage students and emulate the office-hour experience, Mastering personalizes learning and often improves results for each student. With Learning Catalytics instructors can expand on key concepts and encourage student engagement during lecture through questions answered individually or in pairs and groups. Mastering Physics now provides students with the new Physics Primer for remediation of math skills needed in the college physics course.
