Summary: Conceptual Physical Science, Third Edition takes learning physical science to a new level by combining Hewitt's leading conceptual approach and friendly writing style in a new edition that provides stronger integration of the sciences, more quantitative coverage, and a wealth of new media resources (to help professors in class, and students out of class).

Media references throughout the book point students to additional online help, and help instructors more easily integrate text and media into their course.
