Practice Book for Conceptual Physics Fundamentals 1 Ed. Paul G. Hewitt. Most of the material a beginning high school student (or someone in a "physics for poets" college class) would need to know can be taught with just algebra/algebra 2 and maybe a little trig. Hewitt's humorous sketches and clear explanations are a very different way of teaching physics than most of us have seen.

more)Loadin. his is a good book. Hewitt’s book is famous for engaging readers with analogies and imagery from real-world situations that build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong foundation, readers are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and are motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter.

Paul G. Hewitt popularized this approach with his textbook Conceptual Physics: A New . first book to take this approach. Hewitt popularized this approach with his textbook Conceptual Physics: A New Introduction to your Environment in 1971. Hewitt's wasn't the. Conceptual Physics: Matter in Motion by Jae R. Ballif and William E. Dibble was published in 1969. But Hewitt's book became very successful

This manual contains interesting lab experiments that use minimal equipment, as well as a wide range of activities similar to the projects in Conceptual Physics, Tenth Edition. These activities guide students to experience phenomena in a follow-up laboratory experiment.

This book was required for my physics class. Well, actually the hardback version is what they told us to get, but I got the paperback version instead. It is over a hundred dollars cheaper and as far as I can tell, there is no difference between the two versions of this book. I honestly cannot justify paying over a hundred dollars more just so the front and back cover is shinier and has extra cardboard. If you only need to take this class for 1 semester, buying the paperback version will save you a good bit of money.

This book is actually very good. For those who say it doesn't deal with the math part of Physics, it actually does. What it doesn't do is touch on Calculus - Algebra and trig is as far as it goes. Note that the title says "conceptual physics". That's exactly what it focuses on the most. For example, when working with the mechanics section you're going to be learning about the concept behind different forces (how they are related to acceleration for example). You WILL learn the math behind most of it, but nothing too in depth. I'm using this book for my introduction course. Obviously is you took a physics course for science, engineering, or math majors you would never use this book. Don't let the fact that many others don't understand that push you away.

In short, if you're completely new to physics, I think this is a great book. It will teach you all of the concepts you need to know, and the basic (algebra & trig) math behind those concepts. If you've already been introduced to this stuff (i.e if you've taken an advanced physics course, or are a professor, then don't expect to learn much from it.

All in all, I have to give it 5 stars because it does what it is supposed to do - conceptualizes physics.

If you want to learn about physics, this is the book for you. It's all here, in plain English. Starts off pretty simple, and you might think you already know it. Trust me, review the material in the terms in which it's presented. Later on, when you get to more complex subjects like magnetism, you'll be glad you took the time to study simple acceleration.
The cartoonish illustrations are quite helpful and the photo examples featuring friends, family, students, and luminaries of the field are quite endearing. So not only does this book cover a lot of ground, it has a personal touch that makes the material quite approachable.
Have fun.

I am physics teacher and in my view of thinking this book is a "must have". It is not a huge handbook with formulas, it focuses on physics ideas and principles in a good way to work up the intuition. Besides, we find an interesting problems collection at the end of each chapter. A remarkable way to introduce physics.

This is the first edition of Paul Hewitt's Conceptual Physics, the gold standard for teaching physics without being buried in pre-calculus math. Most of the material a beginning high school student (or someone in a "physics for poets" college class) would need to know can be taught with just algebra/algebra 2 and maybe a little trig. Hewitt's humorous sketches and clear explanations are a very different way of teaching physics than most of us have seen. He does not assume the reader can't do the math; rather, he assumes the reader is interested in the "what does it mean" part of physics and not in solving detailed problems, though equations are used and relationships (especially proportionalities) are pointed out. It is interesting to compare this first edition with the more recent ones.

This is the Global Edition. I know it says so in the title, but for some reason - it was not obvious to me when I ordered it. My professor let me use it, because it is really REALLY similar to the 12th edition. If he says turn to page 100, add 26 pages - at page 126 will be there right area where he is at on page 100. Hope that makes sense. This is a good book. I am not remotely intelligent when it comes to physics, but this book does a good job of explaining it in everyday language.

i love physics very much, however, once my educators want me to solve some complex word problem dealing with thermodynamics, gravitational force, or EM forces my brain just can't seem to make sense of any of it. This book provides a well written explanation of all the science and math without having to do any word problems. Everything from sound waves to Einstein's Theory on Relativity are explained in such a way that I could competently hold a conversation with some one...just don't ask me do the math. I highly recommend it to any high school-er trying to understand their physic class or non-science majors taking physics as a science credit.
Good Book, Pearson is still awful. Hideous and unsafe Flash Player interfaces for the online content. For the eBook version (which is also run through Adobe Flash), the highlighter (an essential component) doesn't work properly. Placed highlights are either off by 1/4 or 1/2 inch, or randomly crash the Flash Player. Search option is useless, it brings up individual chapters that hold the words, and because the pages don't scale at all, you have to look for the awkwardly tinted (not even highlighted) words that you were looking for by essentially reading every page..

I don't think professors realize how much of a pain in the rear Pearson is for students. McGraw-Hill and Norton are so much better for online content, if you absolutely must have it. But if you don't, do your students a favor and stick to the cheapest book suitable to your course, and steer clear of proprietary course software.
