Book Description

January 7, 2010 0470547898 978-0470547892 Volume 1
The new Ninth Edition of Halliday, Resnick and Walker’s Principles of Physics has been strategically revised to focus on engaging students, supporting critical thinking and moving students to the next level of physics understanding.

Key to the Ninth Edition’s support for critical thinking and development of understanding physics concepts is Jearl Walker’s modern voice.  Jearl Walker is both an active teacher, who understands the challenges faced in today’s classroom, and a world renowned communicator of science to the general public.   His Flying Circus of Physics is a cult classic among physics students and instructors and material from this book is integrated throughout the Ninth Edition to catch students’ attention, engage them, and encourage them to solve the underlying real world physics phenomenon and concepts, before they begin the more quantitative portion of the content or problem.

  • Integration of The Flying Circus of Physics. Material from The Flying Circus is incorporated into the chapter opener puzzlers, Sample Problems, text examples and end-of-chapter problems to make the subject more interesting and engaging and to show students that the world around them can be examined and understood using the fundamental principles of physics. Links to The Flying Circus material are identified throughout the text with a biplane icon. 
  • Checkpoints offer stopping points so students can check their understanding of a question with some reasoning based on the narrative or sample problem they just read.
  • Sample problems are chosen to demonstrate how problems can be solved with reasoned solutions rather than quick and simplistic plugging of numbers into an equation with no regard for what the equation means.
  • Key Ideas in the sample problems focus a student on the basic concepts at the root of the solution to a problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fundamentals of Physics, Chapters 1-20 (Volume 1) September 3, 2010
By Bob
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Book does not come With the Wiley PLUS Registration Code. It is an extra $90. This make it more then to get it at my School (code and book are about $170 there). The review has the Wiley PLUS in it but you cannot use unless you pay more. THE NEW BOOK SHOULD COME WITH THE CODE OR SAY IT DOES NOT!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still alive and well February 6, 2011
More than thirty years ago, when I was an engineering student, my physics "Bible" was Halliday & Resnick, Physics for Students of Science and Engineering, 1st Edition. This is a book that has aged gracefully. While the basic physics concepts were retained, the examples have been updated in each revision to keep up with the technology advances. Now in its ninth edition since Walker started to collaborate with the previous authors, it is still one of the most enjoyable readings in elementary physics. I recommend it without reservation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware! January 28, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book does not come with online access, you must purchase that separately. Most campus bookstores will have the two bundled so that this type of thing doesn't happen. However, it is a good buy if you don't need that portion.
