Overview

Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo's Engineering Mechanics, 2e is the Problem Solver's Approach for Tomorrow's Engineers.

Based upon a great deal of classroom teaching experience, Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo provide a visually appealing learning framework to your students. The look of the presentation is modern, like the other books the students have experienced, and the presentation itself is relevant, with examples and exercises drawn from the world around us, not the world of sixty years ago.

Examples are broken down in a consistent manner that promotes students' ability to setup a problem and easily solve problems of incrementally harder difficulty.

Engineering Mechanics is also accompanied by McGraw-Hill's Connect which allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the students' work. Most problems in Connect are randomized to prevent sharing of answers and most also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

Engineering Mechanics, 2e by Plesha, Gray, & Costanzo, a new dawn for statics and dynamics.
