Prentice Hall Conceptual Physics © 2009


Authored by Paul Hewitt, the pioneer of the enormously successful "concepts before computation" approach, Conceptual Physics boosts student success by first building a solid conceptual understanding of physics.

The Three Step Learning Approach makes physics accessible to today's students.

  1. Exploration – Ignite interest with meaningful examples and hands-on activities.

  2. Concept Development – Expand understanding with engaging narrative and visuals, multimedia presentations, and a wide range of concept-development questions and exercises.

  3. Application – Reinforce and apply key concepts with hands-on laboratory work, critical thinking, and problem solving.

With Conceptual Physics, students learn physics by doing physics. Author Paul Hewitt, the pioneer of the enormously successful “concepts before computation” approach, continues to set the standard for clear, accessible writing and a three-step approach to physics that will stimulate students at every learning level. Now with even more problem-solving opportunities, robust technology, and hands-on materials.
