U754-103 General Physics I

General Physics I is a traditional, non-calculus-based, first semester physics course broken into three themes. You will study motion in one dimension, vectors and two-dimensional motion, and the laws of motion; work and energy, momentum and collisions, circular motion and the law of gravity, rotational equilibrium and rotational dynamics, and solids and fluids; and thermal physics, heat, the laws of thermodynamics, vibrations and waves, and sound.

Course Materials
Essentials of College Physics
(ISBN: 9780495106197) Edition: 1st
ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE PHYSICS is a streamlined version of Serway's market-leading College Physics text, using the same clear and logical presentation of the concepts and principles but providing a slimmer and more affordable alternative for instructors looking to focus on the core concepts. By integrating the guiding principles of physics education research and including unique just-in-time quantitative problem-solving features, the text strikes a balance between problem-solving support and conceptual understanding. "Math Focus" boxes and a unique "Math Appendix" provide your students with an opportunity to master their numerical problem-solving skills and then connect those skills to concrete physics applications. "Quick Quiz" and "Checkpoint" questions provide students with ample opportunity to test their conceptual understanding, while "Tips" boxes help students avoid common misconceptions. And all "Worked Examples" feature a two-column format, explaining each step of the solution both conceptually and quantitatively. The innovative technology program is perfectly tailored to support any course design.
