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.

Student Solutions Manual for Essentials of College Physics, Vol. 2
(ISBN: 9780495107828) Edition: 1st
For Chapters 15-30, this manual contains detailed solutions to approximately 12 problems per chapter. These problems are indicated in the textbook with boxed problem numbers. The manual also features a skills section, important notes from key sections of the text, and a list of important equations and concepts.
