Review a .pdf of the front matter of this textbook, including its table of contents. Here are a few sample pages of discussing Newton’s second law of motion: PhysicsSample. These are actually physics pages from our very similar upper level physical science textbook, which extends the approach of Conceptual Physics to include chemistry, Earth science, and astronomy.

This self-study physics course walks the student through Paul Hewitt’s favorite content, which, no surprise, is practically the entire book. This is ample content for a two semester course of study. Highly recommended for students needing an introduction to the essential concepts of physics, whether it be to fulfill a science requirement or as preparation for further studies. The material is presented in 41 self-paced lessons. In addition to video tutorials and reading assignments, eight unit exams are provided along with study aids, such as worksheets, simulations, and automated quizzes. Importantly, for each lesson, the author provides his personal comments and guidance regarding the material. Also includes a complete set of meaningful and engaging labs using only materials available from home or a discount store. To learn more about this course, please review the Conceptual Physics teacher’s manual:
