Summary: This best-selling algebra-based physics text has been widely known for its carefully crafted exposition, strong biological applications, and high degree of accuracy and precision. The Fifth Edition maintains these strengths and brings a conceptual emphasis and real-world flavor to the examples, problems, and art program. In addition, the new edition features an unparalleled suite of media and on-line resources to enhance the physics classroom.

NEW--CON moreCEPTUAL EMPHASIS New Conceptual Examples foster development of students' reasoning skills. They go beyond numerical problem solving and the application of formulas, challenging students to explore the basic concepts that are fundamental to understanding physics. Estimation Examples give students insight into how to quickly make approximations and order-of-magnitude estimates. CONCRETE, RELEVANT APPLICATIONS Giancoli makes physics more interesting and relevant for students by applying it to their everyday activities and interests. New Physics Applied side notes highlight in-text applications to such areas as medicine, physiology, sports, and technology. The fifth edition continues the Giancoli tradition of strong biological applications. PROBLEM-SOLVING GUIDANCE The accessible presentation and pedagogical tools in the Fifth Edition continue to reinforce students' basic problem-solving skills.

    • Problem-solving notes.
    • Careful hints.
    • Problem-solving boxes.
    • Highlighted equations.
    • End-of-chapter problems.
UPGRADED ART PROGRAM The Fifth edition features new photorealistic and 3D art that is both clear and instructive. To help students visualize physics at work, dozens of new photos have been added as well as a substantial increase in illustrations to accompany end-of-chapter problems. REVISED NARRATIVE Early chapters of the book were an important focus of the overall revision, with extensive reviewer and user feedback incorporated to improve organization and clarity. UNRIVALED MEDIA PROGRAM Prentice Hall continues to set the standard when it comes to helping you integrate the power of new media technologies into your classroom.
