    Intended for non-science majors Physics Courses

    Since defining this course 30 years ago, Paul Hewitt's best-selling text continues as the benchmark by which all others are judged. In Conceptual Physics Twelfth Edition Paul Hewitt makes physics interesting, understandable, and relevant for non-science majors. The Twelfth Edition will delight students with informative and fun Hewitt-Drew-It screencasts, updated content and applications.


    Hewitt's text is guided by the principle of ""concepts before calculations"" and is famous for engaging students with analogies and imagery from the real-world that build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics.

    This program presents a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students.

    Prepare for lecture: NEW! 100 Hewitt-Drew-It screencasts, authored and narrated by Paul Hewitt, explain physics concepts through animation and narration. The exciting new Screencasts, accessed through QR codes in the textbook, will enable students to engage with the physics concepts more actively outside of class.

    Make physics delightful: Relevant and accessible narrative, analogies from real-world situations, and simple representations of the underlying mathematical relationships make physics more appealing to students.

    Build a strong conceptual understanding of physics: Students gain a solid understanding of physics through practice and problem solving in the book.
