Description

Overview

University Physics with Modern Physics helps you learn how to see patterns, make connections between problems, and build confidence for tackling different problem types. You’ll learn to recognize when to use similar steps in solving the same problem type and develop an understanding for problem solving approaches, rather than simply plugging in an equation.The 15th Edition addresses the tendency to focus on the objects, situations, numbers, and questions posed in a problem, rather than recognizing the underlying principle or the problem’s type. New Key Concept statements at the end of worked examples address this challenge by identifying the main idea used in the solution to help you recognize the underlying concepts and strategy for the given problem.
