Physics: Principles and Problems – Glencoe Science – 1st Edition


: Principles and provides integrated support, abundant opportunities for , and a variety of realistic applications.

Give your class new momentum with conceptual understanding, valuable math support, and problem-solving activities. Providing a total of 40 labs, the Laboratory Manual offers a traditional and/or open-ended lab for every chapter in Physics: Principles and Problems. Teachers may choose to add to labs offered in the edition or use the Laboratory Manual in lieu of the text labs. It can also be used with any other physics program as a source of additional labs.

Offers unique Example Problems that include highly effective modeling with “coaching notes” to aid comprehension Integrates math support with point-of-use Problem-Solving Strategies, Connecting Math to Physics, and Challenge Problems features. Virtual Investigations provide highly interactive physics labs that support of key concepts.
