Re: [Phys-L] Survey of Physics

Though it has some notable flaws, we are still using Hewitt’s “Conceptual Physics.” The students generally like it. Students can find the penultimate edition pretty cheap.

We’ve also used Kirkpatrick and Wheelers “Physics: A Worldview.”

I am teaching a Survey of Physics class for the first time and I would love
suggestions for a good textbook. I have taught lots of physics and
physical science, so I can build on that background. I would love something
OER, but the Openstax books I am familiar with all seem to be at too high
of a level.

Also, I would appreciate any key suggestions for topics or approaches that
have worked for you for this sort of student in this sort of class.
