Glencoe Physics: Principles & Problems – McGraw-Hill Education – Student Edition

Description

Give your class new momentum with conceptual understanding, valuable math support, and problem-solving activities. Although not calculus-based, Glencoe : Principles & (Copyright 2005) provides a strong foundation for beginning of high school or college . A lot of basic items that are taken for granted by other textbooks are explained in simple english.

For example, the three-lined equal sign ≡ is explained on page 44, along with the difference between average velocity and average speed. are presented and explained. The equations have subscripts that are relevant to the meaning of the situation. The example problems begin with a problem statement and a detailed procedure for solving it, step-by-step.
