Actively engage students in learning and loving physics
Paul Hewitt’s best-selling Conceptual Physics defined the liberal arts physics course over 30 years ago and continues as the benchmark. Hewitt’s text is guided by the principle of "concepts before calculations" and is famous for engaging students with real-world analogies and imagery to build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles, ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. In Conceptual Physics, Paul Hewitt integrates a compelling text and the most advanced media to make physics interesting, interactive, understandable, and relevant.
