**Practice makes perfect: Guided practice helps students develop into expert problem solvers**

Practice makes perfect. The new **15th Edition** of ** University Physics with Modern Physics **draws on a wealth of data insights from hundreds of faculty and thousands of student users to address one of the biggest challenges for students in introductory physics courses: seeing patterns and making connections between problem types. Students learn to recognize when to use similar steps in solving the same problem type and develop an understanding for problem solving approaches, rather than simply plugging in an equation.

This new edition addresses students’ tendency to focus on the objects, situations, numbers, and questions posed in a problem, rather than recognizing the underlying principle or the problem’s type. New Key Concept statements at the end of worked examples address this challenge by identifying the main idea used in the solution to help students recognize the underlying concepts and strategy for the given problem. New Key Example Variation Problems appear within new Guided Practice sections and group problems by type to give students practice recognizing when problems can be solved in a similar way, regardless of wording or numbers. These scaffolded problem sets help students see patterns, make connections between problems, and build confidence for tackling different problem types when exam time comes.

**Give students the problem-solving tools they want, based on input from thousands of students**

**New - Key Example Variation Problems**in the new Guided Practice section at end of each chapter are based on selected worked examples. They build in difficulty by changing scenarios, swapping the knowns vs. unknowns, and adding complexity and/or steps of reasoning to provide the most helpful range of related problems that use the same basic approach to solve. These scaffolded problem sets help students see patterns and make connections between problems that can be solved using the same underlying principles and strategies so that they are more able to tackle different problem types when exam time comes. Assignable in Pearson Mastering Physics.**New - Worked example “Key Concept” statements**appear at the end of every example and conceptual example, providing a brief summary of the key idea used in the solution to consolidate what was most important and what can be broadly applied to other problems.**A research-based problem-solving approach (Identify, Set Up, Execute, Evaluate)**teaches students to tackle problems thoughtfully rather than cutting straight to the math. This approach is consistently used not just in every example but also in the Problem-Solving Strategies and throughout the Student’s and Instructor’s Solutions Manuals and the Study Guide.

**Reinforce problem-solving skills with enhanced End-of-Chapter problem sets **

**Pearson Mastering Physics metadata analysis**has informed the revision of the problem sets by providing insights into which problems instructors assign most often. All problems remain in the Alternate Problem set to provide by far the greatest choice of homework problems available for this course.**Expanded - Challenge problems**significantly stretch students by requiring sophisticated reasoning that often involves multiple steps or concepts and/or mathematical skills. They are the most difficult problems in each chapter and often involve calculus, multiple steps that lead students through a complex analysis, and/or the exploration of a topic or application not explicitly covered in the chapter.**New - Estimation problems**help students learn to analyze problem scenarios, assess data, and work with orders of magnitude. This problem type engages students to more thoroughly explore the situation by requiring them to not only estimate some of the data in the problem but to also decide what data needs to be estimated based on real-world experience, reasoning, assumptions and/or modeling.**Expanded**-**Cumulative problems**promote more advanced problem-solving techniques by requiring knowledge and skills covered in previous chapters to be integrated with understanding and skills from the current chapter.- Scaffolded
**Bridging Problems**now follow the Key Example Variation Problems in the Guided Practice section and help students move from single-concept worked examples to multi-concept homework problems. By popular demand, the Bridging Problems are now assignable in Mastering.

**Build conceptual understanding**

**Learning Outcomes**for each section are provided at the start of each chapter to prepare students for the ideas they will explore. Also listed are sections in previous chapters (“You’ll need to review…”) that are important in the upcoming material, helping students connect ideas and build on prior understanding.**Test Your Understanding questions**at the end of most sections let students check their grasp of the material and use a multiple-choice or ranking-task format to probe for common misconceptions. The answers to these questions are now provided immediately after the question in order to encourage students to try them.**Annotated equations**illustrate all key equations to help students make the connection between a conceptual and a mathematical understanding of physics, as well as to reinforce terminology and symbols.**Expanded**-**Caution paragraphs**focus on typical misconceptions and student problem areas. Over a dozen more have been added based on common errors made in Pearson Mastering Physics.

**Learning Catalytics**, you’ll hear from every student when it matters most. You pose a variety of questions that help students recall ideas, apply concepts, and develop critical-thinking skills. Your students respond using their own smartphones, tablets, or laptops. You can monitor responses with real-time analytics and find out what your students do – and don’t – understand. Then, you can adjust your teaching accordingly and even facilitate peer-to-peer learning, helping students stay motivated and engaged. **New - Alternate problem sets**provide additional problem-solving practice and offer instructors more options when creating assignments with hundreds of new questions and problemsplus**new end-of-chapter problems**.

**Empower each learner: **Each student learns at a different pace. Personalized learning, including adaptive tools and wrong-answer feedback, pinpoints the precise areas where each student needs practice and gives all students the support they need – when and where they need it – to be successful.

**Interactive Prelecture Videos**provide an introduction to key topics with embedded assessment to help students prepare before lecture and to help professors identify student misconceptions.**New Quantitative Pre-lecture Videos**now complement the conceptual Interactive Pre-lecture Videos designed to expose students to concepts before class and help them learn how problems for a specific concept are worked.**New - Direct Measurement Videos**are short videos that show real situations of physical phenomena. Grids, rulers, and frame counters appear as overlays, helping students to make precise measurements of quantities such as position and time. Students then apply these quantities along with physics concepts to solve problems and answer questions about the motion of the objects in the video. The problems are assignable in Mastering and can be used to replace or supplement traditional word problems, and they can serve as open-ended questions to help develop problem-solving skills.**Dynamic Study Modules**help students study effectively–and at their own pace. How? By keeping them motivated and engaged. The assignable modules rely on the latest research in cognitive science, using methods–such as adaptivity, gamification, and intermittent rewards–to stimulate learning and improve retention. Each module poses a series of questions about a course topic. These question sets adapt to each student’s performance and offer personalized, targeted feedback to help them master key concepts.**The Physics Primer**relies on videos, hints, and feedback to refresh students’ math skills in the context of physics and prepares them for success in the course. These tutorials can be assigned before the course begins or throughout the course as just-in-time remediation.
