CPO Science Foundations of Physics, 2nd Edition Collection


With the unique Foundations of Physics, Second Edition hands-on, inquiry-based instructional approach, more students can understand and retain complex physics concepts. The text and investigations connect each new concept to students' experience in the lab or real world, and present ideas in both words and illustrations. The program also combines the best attributes of conceptual and mathematical instruction as students use equations (introductory algebra level) to analyze data and solve quantitative problems. Connections in every chapter provide real world examples of science concepts.

Foundations of Physics units cover measurement and motion, motion and force in one dimension, motion and force in 2 and 3 dimensions, energy and momentum, waves and sound, light and optics, electricity and magnetism, matter and energy, and the atom.
