A Radically Modern Approach to Introductory Physics

A Radically Modern Approach to Introductory Physics
by David J. Raymond

2008
Number of pages: 465

Description:
Many physics teachers have recognized that the standard, calculus-based freshman physics course has stagnated, with texts today looking much like they did 50 years ago and student interest at a low point. A reform movement has developed in the last decade to attempt to remedy this situation, with some reformers trying to teach the conventional materials in an unconventional way, and others trying to introduce new material. Starting with waves and relativity, I attempt to develop all of physics in a modern context rather than adding a bit of modern physics at the end. I hope that the result at least stimulates thinking on this important issue.
