Challenging and fascinating, the Novare Physics: Modeling Nature Student Text engages students in an advanced examination of physics. This volume teaches with fresh illustrations, detailed explanations, plenty of challenging exercises, and integration of essential historical background that enhances awareness of both the legacy and present-day community of scientists. The text is written with Novare hallmarks—support of a mastery learning paradigm, integration of related subjects, and cultivation of a Kingdom perspective that inspires wonder in the beauty and complexity of God's great world.
Some of the topics your student will explore in this course include uniform motion; forces, fields, and Newton's laws of motion; static equilibrium and torque; energy; momentum; rotating systems; pressure and buoyancy; gases and kinetic theory; thermodynamics; electrostatics and electric circuits; magnetism; geometric optics; and nuclear physics. Physics: Modeling Nature employs vector calculations and assumes students have completed trigonometry as a prerequisite. Problems in the text are not calculus-based, but because many students will take calculus concurrently with advanced physics, connections between the two are frequently highlighted.
