Many of the problems students experience with A-Level Physics are associated with the mathematics involved. This title deals with this problem offering support for mathematics in physics. 'Maths boxes' present the mathematics needed to grasp a concept. It includes: objectives stated; color illustrations; and graduated questions and practice.
Written by experienced authors and members of the Editorial Board of the I.O.P. , Advanced Physics maintains the rigors of physics at the highest levels in a style that makes it accessible to a wide range of students. It is increasingly acknowledged that many of the problems students experience with A-Level Physics are associated with the mathematics involved. Advanced Physics deals with the problem head-on with full support for mathematics in physics. 'Maths boxes' have been created within the text to pull out the mathematics needed to grasp a particular concept. A complete appendix at the end of the book has also been added to offer the extra mathematical support needed. The key points are: objectives stated clearly at the beginning of every spread; full color illustrations; and graduated questions and practice.
Advanced Physics is a wonderful book which makes physics inspiring and mind-blowing. It is beautifully laid out and has an excellent balance of text to worked examples, illustrations, practice questions and key points. TES This is a superb text and is probably the most comprehensive single-volume AS/A2 physics text currently available...All teachers will learn something from this new and valuable text.
