The most comprehensive sourcebooks tied to the updated British Columbia science curriculum
Updated Physics 11 & 12 Sourcebooks
- Emphasis is placed on concrete demonstrations of physical phenomena and on truly ‘hand-on’ student labratory activity.
- Gore draws on many years of teaching experience to make physics understandable and enjoyable. He believes that physics can and should be fun to learn.
- The books provide a compromise between a traditional, highly mathematical, ‘broad coverage’ approach, anda purely conceptual approach.
- Books contain well-known demonstrations of physics principles, and a large number of student investigations. Some are descriptive, while others are analytical.
- Exercises and Chapter Review Questions vary in difficulty and in style. Some require non-mathematical, concept-oriented answers, while others involve manipulation of formulas that students have learned in the text.
- Investigations frequently end with optional Challenges for students who wish to pursue topics in detail.
- Solutions to numerical problems are provided at the back of the book.
