**Guided practice helps students develop into expert problem solvers**

The new **15th Edition** of ** University Physics with Modern Physics**, now in SI Units

This edition addresses students’ tendency to focus on the objects and situations posed in a problem, rather than recognizing the underlying principle or the problem type. New Key Concept statements identify the main idea used in examples to help students recognize the underlying concepts and strategy. New Key Example Variation Problems within new Guided Practice sections group problems by type so students recognize when problems can be solved in similar ways, regardless of wording or numbers.

**Reach every student by pairing this text with ****Pearson Mastering Physics**

**Give students the problem-solving tools they want, based on input from thousands of students**

**New—Key Example Variation Problems**in the new Guided Practice section are based on worked examples. They build in difficulty by changing scenarios, swapping knowns and unknowns, and adding complexity to provide a wide range of related problems that use the same basic approach to solve. Assignable in Pearson Mastering Physics.**New—Key Concept statements**appear at the end of every example, providing a summary of the key idea used in the solution to consolidate what was most important and what can be broadly applied to other problems.- A
**research-based problem-solving approach (Identify, Set Up, Execute, Evaluate)**teaches students to tackle problems thoughtfully rather than cutting straight to the math. This approach is consistently used not just in every example but also in the Problem-Solving Strategies and throughout the Instructor’s Solutions Manual.

**Reinforce problem-solving skills with enhanced End-of-Chapter problem sets **

**Expanded—Challenge problems**significantly stretch students by requiring sophisticated reasoning, often involving multiple steps or concepts. They are the most difficult problems in each chapter and often involve calculus and the exploration of a topic or application not explicitly covered in the chapter.**Expanded**—**Cumulative problems**promote advanced problem-solving techniques by covering knowledge and skills from previous chapters to be integrated with understanding from the current chapter.**Bridging Problems**follow the Key Example Variation Problems and help students move from single-concept worked examples to multi-concept homework problems. The Bridging Problems are now assignable in Mastering.

**Build conceptual understanding**

**Learning Outcomes**for each section are provided at the start of each chapter to prepare students for the ideas they will explore. Also listed are sections in previous chapters that are important in the upcoming material, helping students connect ideas and build on prior understanding.**Test Your Understanding questions**at the end of most sections let students check their grasp of the material and use a multiple-choice or ranking-task format to probe for common misconceptions. The answers to these questions are now provided immediately after the question in order to encourage students to try them.**Annotated equations**illustrate key equations to help students make the connection between a conceptual and a mathematical understanding of physics.**Expanded**—**Caution paragraphs**focus on typical misconceptions and student problem areas. Over a dozen more have been added based on common errors made in Pearson Mastering Physics.

**Learning Catalytics**, you’ll hear from every student when it matters most. You pose a variety of questions that help students recall and apply concepts and develop critical-thinking skills. Students respond using their smartphones, tablets, or laptops. You can monitor responses with real-time analytics and find out what your students do—and don’t—understand. **New—Alternate problem sets**provide additional problem-solving practice and offer instructors more options when creating assignments with hundreds of new questions and problems plus**new end-of-chapter problems**.

· **Empower each learner: **Each student learns at a different pace. Personalized learning pinpoints the precise areas where each student needs practice and gives all students the support they need—when and where they need it—to be successful.

**Interactive Prelecture Videos**introduce key topics with embedded assessment to help students prepare before lecture and to help professors identify student misconceptions.**New—Direct Measurement Videos**are short videos that show real situations of physical phenomena. Students then apply these quantities along with physics concepts to solve problems and answer questions about the motion of the objects in the video.**Dynamic Study Modules**help students study effectively—and at their own pace. The assignable modules rely on the latest research in cognitive science, using methods such as adaptivity, gamification, and intermittent rewards to stimulate learning and improve retention. Each series of questions adapts to each student’s performance and offers personalized feedback to help them master key concepts.**The Physics Primer**relies on videos, hints, and feedback to refresh students’ math skills in the context of physics and prepares them for success in the course. They ensure students practice and maintain their math skills, while tying together mathematical operations and physics analysis.

**Give students the problem-solving tools they want, based on input from thousands of students**

**Key Example Variation Problems**in the new Guided Practice section are based on selected worked examples. They build in difficulty by changing scenarios, swapping the knowns vs. unknowns, and adding complexity and/or steps of reasoning to provide the most helpful range of related problems that use the same basic approach to solve. These scaffolded problem sets help students see patterns and make connections between problems that can be solved using the same underlying principles and strategies so that they are more able to tackle different problem types when exam time comes. Assignable in Pearson Mastering Physics.**Worked example “Key Concept” statements**appear at the end of every example and conceptual example, providing a brief summary of the key idea used in the solution to consolidate what was most important and what can be broadly applied to other problems.**Reinforce problem-solving skills with enhanced End-of-Chapter problem sets****Expanded - Challenge problems**significantly stretch students by requiring sophisticated reasoning that often involves multiple steps or concepts and/or mathematical skills. They are the most difficult problems in each chapter and often involve calculus, multiple steps that lead students through a complex analysis, and/or the exploration of a topic or application not explicitly covered in the chapter.**Estimation problems**help students learn to analyze problem scenarios, assess data, and work with orders of magnitude. By requiring students to not only estimate some of the data in the problem but also decide what data needs to be estimated based on real-world experience, reasoning, assumptions and/or modeling, this problem type engages students to more thoroughly explore the situation.**Expanded**-**Cumulative problems**promote more advanced problem-solving techniques by requiring knowledge and skills covered in previous chapters to be integrated with understanding and skills from the current chapter.
