Using Glencoe Physics: Principles and Problems, you can:

  • Actively involve students though Launch Labs—inquiry-based labs at the beginning of each chapter.
  • Address student needs with a consistent three-step Example Problem that includes unique helpful math hints that students can use as they work through problems.
  • Coach your students with unique blue annotations in the Example Problems. Practice Problems provide immediate feedback so every student has the opportunity to master skills that apply to related physics concepts.
  • Help students see the direct connections between math and physics principles. Connecting Math to Physics offers additional math support for every student.
  • Motivate students with Challenge Problems that are designed after the open-ended questions on the Advanced Placement Physics exam with more in-depth applications and problem solving.
  • Provide maximum flexibility in your classroom with Design Your Own Labs, Traditional Labs, and Internet Labs. Probeware technology versions for many of the labs are available on the Web site,
