Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Three parts separately introduced, paginated, and indexed, present a guide to teaching introductory physics, a set of homework and test questions, and an introduction to the classical conservation laws. The guide compiles basic aspects of physics as taught to physics and engineering majors from high school through first-year college. The chapter topics are fairly parallel in the three parts, and include kinematics, motion in two dimensions, static electricity, waves and light, and early modern physics. Annotation c.
