Overview

Plesha, Gray, and Costanzo's Engineering Mechanics: Statics and Dynamics, 2nd edition is the Problem Solver's Approach for Tomorrow's Engineers.

Based upon a great deal of classroom teaching experience, Plesha, Gray, and Costanzo provide a visually appealing, “step-by-step” learning framework. The presentation is modern, up-to-date and student centered, and the introduction of topics and techniques is relevant, with examples and exercises drawn from the world around us and emerging technologies.

Every example problem is broken down in a consistent “step-by-step” manner that emphasises a “Problem Solver's Approach” which builds from chapter to chapter and moves from easily solved problems to progressively more difficult ones.

McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

Engineering Mechanics: Statics and Dynamics, 2nd edition by Plesha, Gray, and Costanzo - a new dawn for the teaching and learning of Statics and Dynamics.
