College Physics: Putting It All Together is an algebra-based physics text designed for the first year, non-calculus college course. Although it covers the traditional topics in the traditional order, this book is very different from its over-inflated and overpriced competitors. College Physics: Putting It All Together:

  • features a clear and streamlined narrative. When the authors break away to introduce a worked example, it is introduced in the text and is directly related to the subject preceding it.
  • tells the students what they need to know to solve the homework and test problems without a lot of unnecessary puffery.
  • keeps students engaged with a friendly and even occasionally humorous writing style, and droll illustrations.
  • handles common student misconceptions in difficult topics by weaving them  into the narrative.
  • retains key textbook elements that are truly useful, such as worked examples, summaries and plenty of chapter-ending problems.
  • priced affordably for your students.

This textbook is a ground-breaking iconoclast in this market, answering a clear demand from physics instructors for a clearer, shorter, more readable and less expensive introductory textbook.
