For courses in algebra-based and calculus-based physics.

This interactive workbook, tutorial oriented worksheets and CD-ROM package is designed to help students visualize and work with specific physics problems through simulations created with Interactive Physics files. Forty problems of varying degrees of difficulty require students to make predictions, change variables, run, and visualize motion on the computer. The accompanying workbook/study guide provides instructions, physics review, hints, and questions. The accompanying CD-ROM contains everything students need to run the simulations.

**Features :**

- NEW--Students do NOT need the Interactive Physics program to use the book/CD-ROM.
- NEW--The Interactive Physics Player Workbook is a Stand-alone product that can be used with any algebra-based or calculus-based physics text.
- NEW--Professors can use the simulations in lecture.
- NEW--All forty of the simulations are either new or updated from the first edition.
- NEW--New graphics have been integrated and the interface has been simplified.
- NEW--Second Edition is on a CD-ROM and is dual-platform.
