Mastering
Since its first edition, University Physics has been revered for its emphasis on fundamental principles and how to apply them. This text is known for its clear and thorough narrative, as well as its uniquely broad, deep, and thoughtful sets of worked examples that provide students with key tools for developing both conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills.
The Fourteenth Edition improves the defining features of the text while adding new features influenced by education research to teach the skills needed by today's students. A focus on visual learning, new problem types, and pedagogy informed by MasteringPhysics metadata headline the improvements designed to create the best learning resource for physics students.
MasteringPhysics and University Physics work together, creating a seamless learning suite that supports student learning before, during, and after class. You can ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics™.
A research-based problem-solving approach (Identify, Set Up, Execute, Evaluate) is used not just in every Example but also in the Problem-Solving Strategies and throughout the Student's and Instructor's Solutions Manuals and the Study Guide. This consistent approach teaches students to tackle problems thoughtfully rather than cutting straight to the math.
NEW | Annotated equations appear in all key equations to help students make a connection between a conceptual and a mathematical understanding of physics.
Data Speaks sidebars, based on MasteringPhysics metadata, alert students to the most statistically common mistakes made in solving problems on a given topic.
Bridging Problems help students move from single-concept worked examples to multi-concept problems in the end-of-chapter material and are revised based on reviewer feedback, ensuring that they are effective and at the appropriate difficulty level.
DATA problems appear in each chapter. These typically context-rich data-based reasoning problems require students to use experimental evidence, presented in a tabular or graphical format, to formulate conclusions.
Passage Problems appear in each chapter and follow the format used in the MCAT exam. These problems require students to investigate multiple aspects of a real-life physical situation, typically biological in nature, as described in a reading passage.

MasteringPhysics from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions.
Mastering brings learning full circle by continuously adapting to each student and making learning more personal than ever—before, during, and after class.
Interactive Pre-lecture videos address the rapidly growing movement toward pre-lecture teaching and flipped classrooms. These videos provide an introduction to key topics with embedded assessment to help students prepare before lecture and to help professors identify student misconceptions.
Learning Catalytics™ is an interactive, student response tool that uses students' smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking. Now included with Mastering with eText, Learning Catalytics enables you to generate classroom discussion, guide your lecture, and promote peer-to-peer learning with real-time analytics. Instructors, you can:
Adaptive Follow-Ups are personalized assignments that pair Mastering's powerful content with Knewton's adaptive learning engine to provide personalized help to students before misconceptions take hold. These assignments address topics students struggled with on assigned homework, including core prerequisite topics.
Tutorials featuring specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content guide your students through the toughest topics in physics. The hallmark Hints and Feedback offer instruction similar to what students would experience in an office hour, allowing them to learn from their mistakes without being given the answer.
Video Tutor Solutions for every Example and Bridging Problem in the book walk students through the problem-solving process, providing a virtual teaching assistant on a round-the-clock basis. New Video Tutor Solutions correspond to new and revised worked examples.
Chapter 4 and Chapter 22 are available for download as sample chapters in PDF format. You'll need Acrobat Reader to view the chapters.

4.2 What happens when the net force on an object is zero, and the significance of inertial frames of reference.
4.3 How the acceleration of an object is determined by the net force on the object and the object's mass.
4.4 The difference between the mass of an object and its weight.
4.5 How the forces that two objects exert on each other are related.

He was an undergraduate at the University of California campuses in San Diego and Los Angeles and did his doctoral research in nuclear theory at Stanford University under the direction of Professor J. Dirk Walecka. Dr. Freedman came to UCSB in 1981 after three years of teaching and doing research at the University of Washington.
At UCSB, Dr. Freedman has taught in both the Department of Physics and the College of Creative Studies, a branch of the university intended for highly gifted and motivated undergraduates. He has published research in nuclear physics, elementary particle physics, and laser physics. In recent years, he has worked to make physics lectures a more interactive experience through the use of classroom response systems and pre-lecture videos.
In the 1970s Dr. Freedman worked as a comic book letterer and helped organize the San Diego Comic-Con (now the world's largest popular culture convention) during its first few years. Today, when not in the classroom or slaving over a computer, Dr. Freedman can be found either flying (he holds a commercial pilot's license) or with his wife, Caroline, cheering on the rowers of UCSB Men's and Women's Crew.
