Concepts Before Computation

With Conceptual Physics, students learn physics by doing physics. Author Paul Hewitt, the pioneer of the enormously successful “concepts before computation” approach, continues to set the standard for clear, accessible writing and a three-step approach to physics that will stimulate students at every learning level.

The Three Step Learning Approach makes physics accessible to today's students

  1. Explore - Hands-on Activities and meaningful examples ignite students’ interest.
  2. Develop - Engaging analogies and striking visuals reinforce understanding and help students think critically.
  3. Apply - Reinforce key concepts with problem-solving, critical thinking, and lab work.
