An Introduction to Physical Science presents a survey of the physical sciences--physics, chemistry, astronomy, meteorology, and geology--for non-science majors. Topics are treated both descriptively and quantitatively, providing flexibility for instructors who wish to emphasize a highly descriptive approach, a highly quantitative approach, or anything in between. The Eleventh Edition includes content and features that help students better visualize concepts, master basic math, and practice problem solving. In addition, a dynamic technology package accompanies the text. A Blackboard/WebCT course, along with HM ClassPrep and CL Testing resources, provide course management tools that help make class preparation and assessment more efficient and effective. The Eleventh Edition is available in both hardcover and--at a reduced price-- paperback versions, giving students flexible options to meet their needs.
