Introductory Physics: A Modeling Approach

2nd Edition by Robert Karplus (Edited by Fernand Brunschwig)

Robert Karplus wrote this innovative textbook on physics for nonscience students between 1965 and 1969. The book first appeared in 1966 as a preliminary edition, and in 1969 W. A. Benjamin, Inc. published the first edition in hardback.

Introductory Physics: A Modeling Approach provides a window through which we can see how a master synthesized his expertise in physics, psychology, and education, and how he built on the innovations generated by the dynamic curriculum and teaching reform projects of the time.
