Cengage Learning is pleased to announce the publication of Debora Katz's ground-breaking calculus-based physics program, PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS: FOUNDATIONS AND CONNECTIONS. The author's one-of-a-kind case study approach enables students to connect mathematical formalism and physics concepts in a modern, interactive way. By leveraging physics education research (PER) best practices and her extensive classroom experience, Debora Katz addresses the areas students struggle with the most: linking physics to the real world, overcoming common preconceptions, and connecting the concept being taught and the mathematical steps to follow. How Dr. Katz deals with these challenges--with case studies, student dialogues, and detailed two-column examples--distinguishes this text from any other on the market and will assist you in taking your students beyond the quantitative. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Ready to take your Flash knowledge to the next level? ThenMacromedia Flash MX Advanced for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickPro Guideis your ticket. Designed for professionals like yourself-users who have mastered the basics of Flash but need help with the advanced animation techniques and ActionScripting--this guide is a must-have for graphic designers, Web animators, game programmers, interface designers, and multimedia pros. In this volume, veteran Flash instructor Russell Chun eschews "cool effects" and case studies for an approach that emphasizes methodology and problem-solving. Using the task-based format that readers have come to expect from this popular series, Russell has divided the text into three primary sections: animation, navigation, and interactivity. The guide covers all of Flash's new features, including the revamped user interface, brand-new commands, and added drawing and text tools. Plus, you'll find plenty of screen shots and visual aids to reinforce the text. WithFlash MX Advanced for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickPro Guideby your side, you'll soon find yourself thinking--maybe even dreaming--in Flash.
The Salters Horners Advanced Physics series provides a course in advanced physics for students and teachers. It places physics into social, industrial, environmental and historical contexts, and covers the A Level specifications in place from September 2000. The materials have been successfully trialled in pilot schools, with the final versions refined following feedback from teachers, students and technicians. This AS Level student's book offers: maths support notes - providing a review of GCSE maths and an introduction to early A Level maths for students with less mathematical ability and higher level maths for the mathematically-minded; applications-led illustrations of the social, economic of industrial aspects of physics, for example, designing buildings to withstand earthquakes, to help students understand the relevance of physics in everyday life; and a full-colour and clear design.

Das kleine Buch der Stringtheorie bietet eine knappe und unterhaltsame Einführung in eines der meistdiskutierten Gebiete der modernen Physik. Die Stringtheorie gilt als eine „Theorie für Alles“, mit der sich sämtliche Grundkräfte der Natur beschreiben lassen. Bisher allerdings konnte sie experimentell nicht bestätigt werden, und unter Physikern wird sie sehr kontrovers diskutiert. Dieses Buch gibt Ihnen die Gelegenheit, sich ein eigenes Bild zu machen!
