Walker’s goal is to help readers make the connection between a conceptual understanding of physics and the various skills necessary to solve quantitative problems. The pedagogy and approach are based on over 20 years of teaching and reflect the results of physics education research. The Volume 2, Fourth Edition strengthens both the conceptual foundations and the tools for problem solving.
