Overview

Debora Katz's groundbreaking calculus-based physics program, PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS: FOUNDATIONS AND CONNECTIONS, Advance Edition features a one-of-a-kind approach that enables students to connect mathematical formalism and physics concepts in a modern, interactive way. By leveraging physics education research (PER) best practices and her extensive classroom experience, Dr. Katz addresses the areas students struggle with most: linking physics to the real world, overcoming common preconceptions, and connecting each concept to the mathematical steps to follow. Case studies, student dialogues, and detailed two-column examples assist you in taking your students "beyond the quantitative."

Debora M. Katz, United States Naval Academy

Katz earned her PhD in Astrophysics from University of Minnesota, one of the top PER programs in the country. She has been active in the PER community and has attended multiple conferences to learn how to better integrate innovative pedagogies into the classroom. She has effectively done so in a very traditional environment at the Naval Academy, where she is a tenured professor. She is an active researcher who regularly works with undergraduate students.

WebAssign is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling you to realize your teaching goals and instantly assess individual student performance to help students learn math, not just do online homework.

  • Case-study approach motivates students and makes abstract concepts concrete. Case studies, many based on real-world experiences such as news items and historical events, draw readers into the story of physics and make concepts understandable. The case studies are introduced and revisited throughout the chapters in interactive concept exercises, examples, and end-of-chapter problems. This unique case study approach makes abstract physics concepts concrete and bridges the formal language and mathematics of physics with key concepts.
  • Student dialogues address preconceptions. Dr. Katz uses student preconceptions (or misconceptions) as building blocks toward proper understanding, showing students the connection between their notions and the true physical principles. Preconceptions are primarily addressed by dialogues between fictional students that allow readers to discover their preconceptions without a sense of failure.
  • Two-column format for examples and derivations connects mathematical formalism and physics concepts. Two-column examples and derivations use graphics to clearly frame the qualitative reasoning and quantitative steps behind a problem, helping students make connections between the concept being taught and the mathematical steps to follow. It's like having an instructor in the text: in one column he or she explains the concept, and in the other he or she shows the formal mathematical steps that might be written on a classroom board.
  • Readability. Many textbooks were originally written for previous generations of students. Although these textbooks have been updated for content, today's students don't find them readable. This book was written to be readable without compromising content, because students are willing and able to read a book they find engaging.
  • Integration with Enhanced WebAssign. Enhanced WebAssign combines exceptional physics content with the most powerful online homework solution, WebAssign. Enhanced WebAssign engages students with simulation-based PreLecture Exploration exercises, case-study tutorials, and a fully customizable eBook. This robust suite of assets will help students develop a deeper conceptual understanding of their subject matter.
  • Instructor Resources include Reading Prep Questions designed for use in the classroom to check students’ comprehension of their textbook reading, and Discussion Questions that have been created to foster Think-Pair-Share and facilitate in-class discussions.
