Six Ideas That Shaped Physics: Unit T - Some Processes are Irreversible 3 9780077600969 Six Ideas That Shaped Physics is the 21st Century's alternative to traditional, encyclopedic textbooks. Thomas Moore designed this textbook to teach students the following: (1) To apply basic physical principles to realistic situations (2) To solve realistic problems (3) To resolve contradictions between their preconceptions and the laws of physics (4) To organize the ideas of physics into an integrated hierarchy. McGraw-Hill's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.
