The Saunders Core concepts in College Physics CD-ROM features an interactive, three-disc presentation of introductory, algebra/trigonometry-based physics for non-majors. It uses live video, as well as original animation, interactive graphics, audio, and text to teach fundamental principles of introductory physics. It applies the concepts to real-world phenomena while providing tools for learning and doing physics. This set is accompanied by a workbook, which can be used in addition to any other college physics text.

**Key Features **

- Featuring pedagogically-sound video and animation, with more than 260 movies- both animated and live video- including laboratory demonstrations, "real world" examples, graphic models, and more.
- Problem-solving exercises, with audio narration to walk students through the problem-solving process, are accessed from the presentation screens. There are at least two of these "step problems" in every module.
- Equations discussed are annotated with audio explanation and graphics (or diagrams).
- More than 90 Pop Questions reinforce learning and ensure that students have a grasp of the information presented.
- Mathematics in Detail presents math in a step-by-step format.
- The CD-ROM provides several features specifically tailored to the algebra/trigonometry student. Additional definitions and a section on math notations, including limit notations, summation sine, and dot product, further clarify the information presented.
