Conceptual Physics, Global Edition

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, 12th Edition Paul Hewitt makes physics interesting, understandable, and relevant for non-science majors. The 12th 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.

Practice Book for Conceptual Physics

This book is filled with computational exercise, misconception-busting questions, analogies, and straightforward practice questions and problems that help students “tie it all together.”
Conceptual Physics, Global Edition
  • NEW! Updated applications are available for digital technology, environment, and energy. These topics are at the forefront of everyone’s consciousness these days and an intelligent awareness of their scientific foundations will give rise to better decision making in the political arena.
  • NEW! A new interior design provides an attractive, fresh, and accessible new look, updating a classic text to be even more student friendly.
  • An extensive full-colour figure and photo program includes the author’s hallmark cartoons, which are both approachable and informative.
  • Fun and easy-to-perform projects involve students in the scientific process of exploration and observation.
  • Insight boxes provide short snippets of information about how topics in the text relate to real-life situations, experiments, and other parts of the book.  
  • Enhanced coverage of topics in energy and environment are included and help to keep students aware of current events.

Build a strong conceptual understanding of physics

  • NEW! Revised End of Chapter sections fit Bloom’s Taxonomy. All end of chapter material has been rearranged and revised as needed to fit into Bloom’s taxonomy categories.
  • All sections are now numbered to allow for more instructor flexibility in assigning class material.
  • Check Yourself and Check Your Answer boxes embedded within the text help students gauge their level of understanding of the material just covered.
  • Practicing Physics boxes allow students to work through a problem or experiment based on the material covered in each chapter.
  • A wide variety of problems are provided at the end of each chapter.
  • Conceptual Ranking end of chapter exercises help students master important concepts.
  • Multiple-choice Practice Exams at the end of each part enable the student to assess their grasp of the material they just learned.
