Physical Science, Eleventh Edition, is intended to serve the needs of non-science majors who are required to complete one or more physical science courses. It offers exceptional, straight-forward writing, complemented with useful pedagogical tools.

Physical Science introduces basic concepts and key ideas while providing opportunities for students to learn reasoning skills and a new way of thinking 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 determine topic sequence and depth of coverage as needed. The materials are also designed to support a conceptual approach, or a combined conceptual and problem-solving approach. Along with the accompanying laboratory manual, the text contains enough material for the instructor to select a sequence for a two-semester course.

Now in its third edition, Mathematical Concepts in the Physical Sciences, 3rd Edition provides a comprehensive introduction to the areas of mathematical physics. It combines all the essential math concepts into one compact, clearly written reference.

This book is intended for students who have had a two-semester or three-semester introductory calculus course.  Its purpose is to help students develop, in a short time, a basic competence in each of the many areas of mathematics needed in advanced courses in physics, chemistry, and engineering.  Students are given sufficient depth to gain a solid foundation (this is not a recipe book).  At the same time, they are not overwhelmed with detailed proofs that are more appropriate for students of mathematics.  The emphasis is on mathematical methods rather than applications, but students are given some idea of how the methods will be used along with some simple applications.

Consistent with previous editions of AN INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL SCIENCE, the goal of the new Fourteenth Edition is to stimulate students' interest in and gain knowledge of the physical sciences. Presenting content in such a way that students develop the critical reasoning and problem-solving skills that are needed in an ever-changing technological world, the authors emphasize fundamental concepts as they progress through the five divisions of physical sciences: physics, chemistry, astronomy, meteorology, and geology. Ideal for a non-science major's course, topics are treated both descriptively and quantitatively, providing instructors the flexibility to emphasize whichever approach works best for their students.

Problem-Based Learning in the Physical Science Classroom, K 12 will help your students truly understand concepts such as motion, energy, and magnetism in true-to-life contexts. The book offers a comprehensive description of why, how, and when to implement problem-based learning (PBL) in your curriculum. Its 14 developmentally appropriate lessons cover forces and motion, energy transformation, and electricity and magnetism. The lessons inviting titles include Cartoon Cliff Escape and Rube Goldberg Machine.

This volume is the third in NSTA s PBL series, which also covers Earth and space science and life science. Like those guides, Problem-Based Learning in the Physical Science Classroom, K 12 shows you how to use scenarios in creative ways to represent real-world science in all its messy, thought-provoking glory. The scenarios will prompt K 12 learners to work collaboratively, the way scientists do. They ll analyze problems, ask questions, pose hypotheses, find needed information, and then construct solutions.

In addition to complete lesson plans that support the Next Generation Science Standards, the book offers extensive examples, instructions, and tips for implementing open-ended inquiry. It also provides rich, authentic problems you can use as is or adapt. You can be confident the problems are effective because the authors not only facilitated the National Science Foundation funded PBL Project for Teachers but also tested the problems in their own science classrooms.
