For a strong, deep, and fundamentally simple understanding of physics
Eric Mazur’s groundbreaking Principles and Practice of Physics establishes an understanding of physics that is thorough and accessible. Mazur’s unique pedagogy and popular peer-to-peer instruction techniques incorporate insights supported by physics education research (PER) to help students develop a true conceptual understanding alongside the quantitative skills needed in the course. The material emphasizes core unifying ideas with the first half of each chapter teaching the ideas using words and images — not mathematics. The second half of each chapter casts the ideas into quantitative and symbolic form.
The 2nd Edition integrates key features from the Practice volume into the Principles volume and provides all Practice volume content in Mastering Physics. The new edition provides new prelecture material that better prepares students to come to class ready to participate and supports instructors in building active and relevant lectures.
By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. Mastering Physics extends learning and provides students with a platform to practice, learn, and apply knowledge outside of the classroom.
