Cengage Learning is pleased to announce the publication of Debora Katzas ground-breaking calculus-based physics program, PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS: FOUNDATIONS AND CONNECTIONS. The authoras one-of-a-kind case study approach enables students to connect mathematical formalism and physics concepts in a modern, interactive way. By leveraging physics education research (PER) best practices and her extensive classroom experience, Debora Katz addresses the areas students struggle with the most: linking physics to the real world, overcoming common preconceptions, and connecting the concept being taught and the mathematical steps to follow. How Dr. Katz deals with these challenges--with case studies, student dialogues, and detailed two-column examples--distinguishes this text from any other on the market and will assist you in taking your students beyond the quantitative.

In practice, we draw vectors so as to anticipate a result that we want to calculate algebraically. An approximate scale rather ...
