For courses in introductory algebra-based physics.
Help students learn physics by doing physicsCollege 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.
Mastering™ 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.
Also available 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.

Gorazd Planinsic is a Professor of Physics at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. He has a PhD in physics from the University of Ljubljana. Since 2000 he has been leading the Physics Education program that prepares almost all high-school physics teachers for the country of Slovenia. He started his career in MRI physics and later switched to Physics Education Research. During the last ten years, his work has mostly focused on the research of new experiments and how to use them more productively in teaching and learning physics. He is co-founder of the Slovenian hands-on science center House of Experiments. Professor Planinsic is co-author of more than 80 peer-refereed research articles, more than 20 popular science articles, and is the author of a university textbook for future physics teachers. In 2013 he received the Science Communicator of the Year award from the Slovenian Science Foundation.
Alan Van Heuvelen holds a PhD in physics from the University of Colorado. He has been a pioneer in physics education research for several decades. He taught physics for 28 years at New Mexico State University where he developed active learning materials including the Active Learning Problem Sheets (the ALPS Kits) and the ActivPhysics multimedia product. Materials such as these have improved student achievement on standardized qualitative and problem-solving tests. In 1993 he joined Ohio State University to help develop a physics education research group. He moved to Rutgers University in 2000 and retired in 2008. For his contributions to national physics education reform, he won the 1999 AAPT Millikan Medal and was selected a fellow of the American Physical Society. Over the span of his career he has led over 100 workshops on physics education reform. He has worked with Professor Etkina in the development of the Investigative Science Learning Environment (ISLE) and co-authored the first edition of College Physics and the Active Learning Guide.
