## Description

College is intended for a two-semester college course in introductory physics using and trigonometry. Our main goals in this are:

• to present the basic concepts of that need to know for later
courses and future careers,
• to emphasize that is a tool for understanding the real world, and
• to teach transferable problem-solving skills that can use throughout their
lives

Although the fundamental philosophy of the has not changed, detailed feedback from over 130 reviewers (many of whom used the second edition in the classroom) has enabled us to fine-tune our approach to make the text even more user-friendly, conceptually based, and relevant for students. The third edition also has some added features
to further facilitate learning.
