College Physics https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/0073513954.jpeg 5 9780073513959 College Physics, Fifth Edition, presents a unique forces first approach to physics that builds a conceptual framework as motivation for the physical principles. That intuitive approach, combined with consistent problem-solving strategies, stunning art, extensive end-of-chapter material, and superior digital support make this a product that addresses the needs of today’s students. The Fifth Edition adds more applications to real-life, more problems, and highlights support for math skills needed for physics. Online Labs for Physics is now also included in the Connect offering for this title! Online Labs for Physics is a fully-online lab experience that can be used as an online lab replacement, preparation, supplement or make-up lab to bridge the gap between lab and lecture. These simulations help a student learn the practical and conceptual skills needed, then check for understanding and provide feedback. With pre-lab and post-lab assessment available and editable, instructors can customize each assignment within Connect.

About the Author

Alan Giambattista

Alan Giambattista hails from northern New Jersey. His teaching career got an early start when his fourth-grade teacher, Anne Berry, handed the class over to him to teach a few lessons about atoms and molecules. At Brigham Young University, he studied piano performance and physics. After graduate work at Cornell University, he joined the physics faculty and has taught introductory physics there for nearly three decades.

 

Alan still appears in concert regularly as a pianist and harpsichordist. When the long upstate New York winter is finally over, he is eager to get out on Cayuga Lake’s waves of blue for Sunday sailboat races. Alan met his wife Marion in a singing group and they have been making beautiful music together ever since. They live in an 1824 parsonage built for an abolitionist minister, which is now surrounded by an organic dairy farm. Besides taking care of the house, cats, and gardens, they love to travel together, especially to Italy. They also love to spoil their adorable grandchildren, Ivy and Leo.
