In order to meet these objectives, the authors emphasis is placed on sound physical arguments and discussions of everyday experiences and observations. At the same time, students are motivated through practical examples that demonstrate the role of physics in other disciplines.COLLEGE PHYSICS, Technology Version offers a new complete learning system for the algebra-trig based physics course. The seamless integration of CD-ROM, workbook, and Web site makes it easier for professors and students to incorporate technology-based content into their lectures and studies.The Technology Version of College Physics, Fifth edition consists of: the paperback textbook, the Saunders CORE CONCEPTS IN COLLEGE PHYSICS CD-ROM, the Workbook to accompany the Saunders CORE CONCEPTS IN COLLEGE PHYSICS CD-ROM, and a single CD-ROM containing the textbook version of INTERACTIVE PHYSICS+ software (developed by MSC Working Knowledge), as well as simulation files by Raymond A. Serway that run on this software.Instructors interested in technology-based education should also consider the three options for on-line homework-CAPA (Computer-assisted Personalized Approach), WebAssign, and University of Texas homework delivery systems.Read Less
Thank you for making the College Physics book used for AP Physics so affordable and in such great condition. It was very challenging when the school's recommended on-line book store pricing was so outrageous and you were able to meet my budget. It is greatly appreciated!!!

I ordered this text book for my high school age son. I was under the impression when I ordered the book that it included the CD that originally came with the textbook, but when I received the order it was not included. When I went back and read the description I did not find a mention of the CD either being included or missing. Be sure to read the complete descriptions of the item being ordered and make no assumptions before ordering. The textbook itself is in decent shape and I feel it was worth the price I paid. Hopefully the information on the CD will not be part of the required reading in the class.
