New Features

Available within McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect, SmartBook makes study time as productive and efficient as possible. It identifies and closes knowledge gaps through a continually adapting reading experience that provides personalized learning resources at the precise moment of need. This ensures that every minute spent with SmartBook is returned to the student as the most value-added minute possible. The result? More confidence, better grades, and greater success.

Multis-Version exercises are groups of problems focused around a particular topic that require the student to solve the problem using different inputs. For example, a problem on kinetic energy would be solved for mass, speed, and joule. This helps students to recognize how different problems are related so they can apply problem solving techniques to new questions in homework and on exams.

McGraw-Hill Education Connect is a digital teaching and learning environment that improves performance over a variety of critical outcomes; it is easy to use; and it is proven effective.

The authors’ use of a strong learning framework, as well as modern and compelling applications and examples supports and motivates the student’s journey to master the topics in a University Physics course. Solved problem examples present a consistent seven-step problem solving approach that encourages the student to think like a scientist and make the right decisions on the way to solving the problem.

Recent research and advances in physics are presented throughout the text to provide relevance and motivation to students. The relevance of Physics in alternative energy sources, environmental issues, medicine, astronomy, and engineering are all discussed and represented in the text and problems. “The Big Picture” chapter at the beginning of the text introduces students to the amazing new frontiers of physics research.

Enhanced mathematics coverage is included to assist students with Calculus topics that are relevant to Physics topics. This coverage is optional, and a math appendix appears at the end of the text.

Also available with this edition is MHE's Online Learning Center that features numerous instructor resources including solutions to the problems, an image library, and new lecture PowerPoints for each chapter. You will also find a test bank for each chapter that allows instructors to assign online homework and quizzes - this online homework is gradable and can be edited by instructors.

Key Features

A broad selection of problem types allows the instructor to assign simple or complex exercises tailored to a particular course need. Multiple-choice questions, multi-version exercises, conceptual questions, section-specific exercises, additional chapter exercises, concept checks, and self-test opportunities are available for assignments in many different ways.
