Active Learning Guide for College Physics. College Physics is the first text to use an investigative learning approach to teach introductory physics. This approach encourages students to take an active role follege learning physics, to practice scientific skills such as observing, analyzing, and testing, and to build scientific habits of mind.
Etkinx from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class and encourage critical thinking etmina retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback.
The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions. An active learning approach encourages students to construct an understanding of physics concepts and laws in the same ways that physicists acquire knowledge.
Students learn physics by doing physics. Students learn to represent physical phenomena in multiple ways using words, figures, and equations, including qualitative diagrams and innovative bar charts that create a foundation for quantitative reasoning and problem solving. Students discover the real-world application of physics by relating physics concepts and laws to everyday experiences and applying them to problems in diverse fields such as biology, medicine, and astronomy.
Innovative, widely praised assessment tools employ an active learning approach through examples, exercises, and problems that promote higher-level reasoning. To use the test banks below, you must download the TestGen software from the TestGen website.

If you’re interested in creating a cost-saving package for your students, contact your Pearson rep. She currently teaches at Rutgers University, where she received the highest teaching award in and the New Jersey Distinguished Faculty award in Professor Etkina designed and now coordinates one of the largest programs in physics teacher preparation in the United States, conducts professional development for high school and university physics instructors, and participates in reforms to the undergraduate physics courses.
In she developed a system in which students learn physics using processes that mirror scientific practice. That system serves as the basis for this textbook.
SinceProfessors Etkina and Van Heuvelen have conducted over 60 workshops for physics instructors and co-authored The Physics Active Learning Guide a companion edition to College Physics will be available from Pearson in January, Professor Etkina is a dedicated teacher and an active researcher who has published over 40 peer-refereed articles.
He has a masters degree in physics from Rutgers University, where he studied under Eugenia Etkina and Alan Van Heuvelen, and has also completed postgraduate work in education, high energy physics, and cosmology.
He has been inspiring undergraduates to learn and enjoy physics for more than 15 years. Since Professor Gentile has taught and coordinated a large-enrollment introductory physics course at Rutgers where the approach used in this book is fully implemented. He also assists in the mentoring of future physics teachers by using his course as a nurturing environment for their first teaching experiences.
He has been a pioneer in Physics Education Research for several decades. Materials such as these have improved student achievement on standardized qualitative and problem-solving tests.
He moved to Rutgers University in and retired in Over the span of his career he has led over workshops on physics education reform. In the last ten years, he has worked with Professor Etkina in the development of the Investigative Science Learning Environment ISLEwhich integrates the results of physics education research into a learning system that places considerable emphasis in helping students develop science process abilities while learning physics.

Description Intended for algebra-based introductory physics courses. Personalize learning with MasteringPhysics MasteringPhysics from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students with powerful content.
These videos provide an introduction to key topics with embedded assessment to help students prepare before lecture and to help professors identify student misconceptions. Students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. Once completed, Dynamic Study Modules explain the concept for each correct and incorrect answer.
Questions repeat until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. The content of DSMs focuses on definitions, units, and the key relationships for topics across all of mechanics and electricity and magnetism.
Additional early modules cover basic math, algebra, scientific notation, and other background topics, which are available as graded assignments. Pose questions in a variety of question types to help students develop critical thinking skills Monitor responses to etkinx out where students are struggling Use real-time data to adjust instructional strategy Manage student interactions by automatically grouping students for etkija, teamwork, and peer-to-peer learning.
This blend of new passage problems and physics problems in a biology context are assignable in MasteringPhysics. Tutorialsfeaturing specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content, guide your students through the toughest topics in physics.
The hallmark Hints and Feedback offer instruction similar to what students would experience in an office hour, allowing them to learn from their mistakes without being given the answer. About the Book An active learning approach encourages students to construct an understanding of physics concepts and laws in the same ways that physicists acquire knowledge. Observational Experiment Tables and Testing Experiment Tables direct students to explore science through active discovery.
Students make observations, analyze data, identify patterns, test hypotheses, and predict outcomes. Students can observe the exact experiment described in the tables. Worked Examples, Conceptual Exercises, Quantitative Exercises, and Problem-Solving Strategies build higher-level scientific skills such as analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and experimental design.
The Active Learning Guide can be used in class for individual or group work or assigned as homework. Qualitative-first system develops conceptual understanding.
Worked examples use the multiple representations approach to teach students how to solve complex physics problems. Students translate a problem statement into the language of physics, sketch and diagram the problem, represent it mathematically, solve the problem, and evaluate the result. Reasoning skills boxes focus on a particular skill, such as drawing a motion diagram, force diagram, or work-energy bar chart.
Biological and medical examples throughout the text provide relevance for life science majors and include topics such as understanding the effect of radon on the lungs Chapter 5controlling body temperature Chapter 12and measuring the speed of blood flow Chapter Unique, Jeopardy-style end-of-chapter problems ask students to work backwards from an equation to craft a problem statement.
Review questions at the end of each section of the chapter encourage critical thinking and synthesis rather than recall. Table of Contents I. Motion in One Dimension 2. Impulse and Linear Momentum 6. Work and Energy 7.
