Tipler's textbook sets the standard in introductory physics courses for clarity, accuracy, and precision. This title offers a completely integrated text and media solution, enabling professors to customise their classrooms so that they can teach efficiently and get the most out of their students. This text includes a new strategic problem solving approach and an integrated Maths Tutorial with new tools to improve conceptual understanding.
Through partnering with digital help Sapling Learning, this online homework platform provides extra learning and assessment help for both you and your students. With automatic grading, an easy to use platform, instructors have the option to track and grade each step of the process, allowing them to see where the class as a whole is improving, or where indeed individual students need extra help. No two students are alike, so the tools are there to help make each physics experience unique to the user.
Paul Tipler began his teaching career at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, USA then moved to Oakland University in Michigan, USA as one of the original members of its physics department, playing a major role in developing the physics curriculum. At one time or another over the course of his career, he has taught nearly all of the physics courses. In addition to Physics for Scientists and Engineers, he is also the author of the widely used texts Modern Physics and College Physics. Gene Mosca has taught a variety of students in the calculus based course at Emporia (KS) State, USA for two years, the University of South Dakota, USA for nine years and at Annapolis for twelve years. He recently retired from his teaching position at the U.S. Naval Academy, where, as coordinator of the core physics course, he instituted numerous enhancements to both the laboratory and classroom. Proclaimed by Paul Tipler as 'the best reviewer I ever had,' Mosca became co-author beginning with the fifth edition of this book.
