Physical Science, Tenth Edition, is intended to serve the needs of non-science majors who’re required to complete a number of physical science courses. It offers exceptional, straight-forward writing, complemented with useful pedagogical tools.
Physical Science introduces basic concepts and key ideas whilst providing opportunities for students to be informed reasoning skills and a new state of mind about their environment. No prior work in science is assumed. The text offers students complete coverage of the physical sciences with a level of explanation and detail appropriate for all students.
The sequence of chapters in Physical Science is flexible, and the instructor can resolve topic sequence and depth of coverage as needed. The materials are also designed to reinforce a conceptual approach, or a combined conceptual and problem-solving approach. Together with the accompanying laboratory manual, the text incorporates enough material for the instructor to make a choice a sequence for a two-semester course.
