Conceptual physical science-- explorations by Paul G Hewitt ( Book )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
[This book is for] high school student. [It treats] only the most central concepts [of physics, chemistry, earth science, and astronomy]. The challenge to the student is understanding concepts. [The book] begin[s] with physics, the most basic of the physical sciences ... [The] presentation of chemistry also focuses on concepts and their interconnections ... Earth science encompasses the sciences of geology and meteorology. [The] Earth science chapters will guide you ... in a study of our home planet, including its rocks, minerals, and the dynamics that makes it a continually changing place. Emphasis is on processes, with the theme that geological and atmospheric changes are ongoing - the present is the key to the past. Applications of physics, chemistry, and geology to other massive bodies in the universe bring [you] to astronomy.-To the teacher.

Conceptual integrated science ( Book )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
"This book will change the way you look at science. Written by best-selling author Paul Hewitt, Conceptual Integrated Science is more than a collection of facts-it's a guidebook for understanding the world around you. Using his successful "concepts first" method, accessible writing, and fun and informative illustrations, Hewitt and his team of science experts have crafted a text that focuses on unifying concepts and real-life examples across physics, chemistry, earth science, biology, and astronomy." "The book includes Hewitt's effective teaching method, straight-forward learning features, approachable style, and rigorous coverage. The result is a wide-ranging science text that is uniquely effective and motivational. Conceptual Integrated Science is accompanied by an unparalleled media package that combines Interactive Tutorials, Interactive Figures, and renowned demonstration videos to help you outside of class. Book jacket."--Jacket.
Conceptual physics fundamentals by Paul G Hewitt ( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 74 libraries worldwide
[This text focuses] on mechanical equilibrium (a departure from beginning with kinematics, which too often gets bogged down with the distinction between velocity and acceleration - and their units). [The text] treats heat, followed by electricity and magnetism, [and] waves, sound, and light. [It also offers] an overview of quantum physics, learning to nuclear processes. -To the instructor.
