Summary

Focused on the idea that the rules of the physical world can be taught using a conceptual approach that emphasizes qualitative analysis, the Hewitt team has created a book that is highly readable, flexible, and hands-on. Thirty-four concisely written chapters allow you to better select topics to match your course and the needs of your readers in a one- or two- semester course.Conceptual Physical Science Explorations,Second Editionpresents a clear and engaging introduction to physics, chemistry, astronomy, and earth sciences. The authors use analogies and everyday examples to clarify key concepts and help readers better understand the world around them. The book's consistent, high-quality coverage stimulates active learning with critical thinking exercises, hands-on experiments, review questions, and quantitative problems.Conceptual Physical Science Explorationsis less rigorous in coverage and written more simply thanConceptual Physical Science,Fourth Edition, and directed primarily to college courses where readers are less well prepared, and in some cases, remedial. TheSecond Editionfeatures updated content, new Chapter Opening statements, and more.
