Our textbook is Conceptual Physics Fundamentals, by
Paul G. Hewitt. This custom, paperback version of
Hewitt's text, prepared exclusively for ASU, will
save you almost $50 over the national version (an
alternative textbook is listed below). You may
find used copies of our text published with an
alternative cover photo, shown here.
Conceptual Physics Fundamentals
If you purchase a new copy of our text at a local
bookstore, a supplement to the text has been
enclosed by the publisher (Pearson Addison Wesley)
at no extra cost to you.
The Practice Book contains the answers
to all of the odd-numbered exercises and problems in the text,
as well as a set of workbook style activities (with
solutions) which are coordinated with our textbook.
You may find that the Practice Book is quite
useful when studying for our tests, but none of
the workbook activities within the Practice Book
will be assigned for credit; therefore, the Practice Book
is supplemental material, and is NOT required.
Conceptual Physics Tenth Edition
The local bookstores also have a few copies of the used
textbook, packaged without the practice book; the practice
book is completely optional, so the used textbook alone
will provide you access to all required material.
If you happen to have a copy of Hewitt's Conceptual Physics,
10th Edition, that will serve suitably as an alternative
textbook. Here are the reading
assignments from this text by topic (but not by date).
