- to present the basic concepts of physics that students need to know for later

courses and future careers, - to emphasize that physics is a tool for understanding the real world, and
- to teach transferable problem-solving skills that students can use throughout their

lives

Although the fundamental philosophy of the book has not changed, detailed feedback from over 130 reviewers (many of whom used the second edition in the classroom) has enabled us to fine-tune our approach to make the text even more user-friendly, conceptually based, and relevant for students. The third edition also has some added features

to further facilitate student learning.
