College Physics brings physics to life through a unique approach to the algebra-level introductory physics course. Its winning combination of annotated art, carefully integrated life sciences applications, and strong problem solving and conceptual understanding pedagogy makes this the best text available for helping students master the physics they need to know for their future careers. Using innovative visual cues to break down physics concepts and sequences in numbered equations and figures, College Physics leads students to develop the crucial conceptual understanding they need to be successful in the course.

Carefully crafted to support students new to college-level physics, pedagogical features (chapter goals, Take-Home Messages, Got the Concept?, Watch Out!) guide students to becoming adept problem-solvers.

By incorporating a rigorous presentation of the fundamentals of algebra-based introductory physics with formative physiology, biomedical, and life science topics, students learn to connect physics to living systems. The ultimate goal is for students to have both a solid foundation in physics and to develop a deeper appreciation for why physics is important to their future work in the life sciences.
