UNIVERSITY PHYSICS VOLUME 1 COURSE
Microlearning branded with your institution’s logo & available entirely within your learning environment (LMS). PAY ONCE, THEN USE ON YOUR UNLIMITED STUDENTS FREE, YEAR AFTER YEAR.
The University Physics Volume 1 course contains 152 selfgrading microlearning packages that you can upload to your Learning Management System (LMS).
University Physics is a threevolume collection that meets the pedagogical requirements for two and threesemester calculusbased physics courses. Volume 1 covers mechanics, sound, oscillations, and waves. This course emphasizes connections between theory and application, making physics concepts interesting and accessible to students while maintaining the mathematical rigor inherent in the subject. Frequent applicable examples focus on how to approach a problem, how to work with the equations, and how to check and report their results. This Physics system enhances students’ understanding of concepts through clear and effective illustrations, diagrams, and photographs.
