College Physics

By Eugenia Etkina, Michael Gentile, Alan Van Heuvelen

Published by Addison-Wesley

Published Date: Jul 12, 2013


 College Physics is the first text to use an investigative learning approach to teach introductory physics. This approach encourages you to take an active role in learning physics, to practice  scientific skills such as observing, analyzing, and testing, and to build scientific habits of mind. The authors believe students learn physics best by doing physics.
