Physics! serves as a supplement to the textbook for your introductory college physics course. Standard textbooks contain equations, figures, active figures, examples, problems, quick quizzes, concept reviews, concept inventories, chapter summaries, glossaries, charts, graphs, etc. Somewhere in this pedagogical passel, plainspoken explanations can become lost, or at least hard to find. This book seeks to fill that gap. The volumes and chapters follow the typical progression of topics providing simple definitions, clear explanations, and plenty of irreverence.
The books includes video solutions to some problems and a few demonstrations. I have found such videos to be very helpful when teaching introductory physics. Imagine having the power to pause and rewind (or perhaps mute) your professor! While full video lectures could serve this purpose, the format I provide here lets you move efficiently through the material, only studying detailed video solutions when needed.
Volume 1, Chapter 1 is titled Numbers and covers three introductory concepts: scientific notation, units, and vectors.
16 pages ?
Majority of the pages about himself! Horrible book SAVE YOUR MONEY! Don't waste it in this CRAP
Sorry you hated the book. Apple has no mechanism for refunds, but if you send me your email I will gladly gift you $2!
I don't quite understand what you mean when you say the book is about me. This chapter is about math, and the others are about physics. The book has video solutions to several problems to help the reader, and while I would like to have an actor record those, it is a lot cheaper for me to do it! Some of the book is written in first person just to make it sound less technical. Finally, there is an About the Author, but I think that is pretty standard, and here I use it to show I have credentials I this area.
Also, it is only 16 pages but that and the other unusual aspects are spelled out in the info above. If you are looking for more typical and boring books on math and physics there are plenty of them out there. However, if anyone wants to try something different, I encourage them to BUY THIS CRAP!!
