Matter and Interactions offers a modern,
calculus-based approach for the AP
Physics C course. It presents physics the
way practicing physicists view their discipline
while integrating 20th Century physics and
computational physics. This text emphasizes
the small number of fundamental principles
that underlie the behavior of matter and uses
models that can explain and predict a wide
variety of physical phenomena.
This Fourth Edition includes an emphasis
on constructing and using physical models,
as well as an early introduction into
computer modeling. Some end-of-chapter
problems include experiments using simple
equipment—such as weights, string, coffee
filters, and scotch tape—allowing students to
gain insight into rather deep scientific issues
by experimenting with very simple equipment.
