For courses in integrated science and physical science.

This package includes Mastering Physics.

 

Emphasize concepts and enable students to connect ideas across the sciences

Thebest-selling Conceptual Integrated Science provides an engaging overview of physics, chemistry, earth science, astronomy, and biology at a level appropriate for non-science students. Hewitt’s engaging narrative emphasizes unifying  concepts across physical and life sciences through a clear, friendly writing style, and fun, relevant examples that motivate students.

 

The 3rd Edition expands on its theme of integration and deepens connections between the sciences with new Integrated Science spreads added at the end of each part. Modern references in the updated Technology boxes and new contemporary applications add relevance and help to connect science with students’ everyday lives. Enhanced End-of-Chapter problems engage students with interactive digital features accessible in the Pearson eText and guide them with wrong-answer feedback, where and when they need it. The eText features Hewitt’s video tutorials that play inline, new Check Yourself from the text presented as a hide/reveal interactive feature, and multiple-choice quizzes at the end of each chapter.

 

Personalize learning with Mastering Physics

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.Now providing a more interactive and seamlessly integrated experience, the eText provides embedded links to video tutorials and end-of-chapter questions within Mastering Physics.
