Möbius Redemption Code
A digital redemption code to the Möbius platform.
Bring online learning to life for your students with a platform that integrates the text, animations, interactives and additional questions with Möbius. Möbius is an HTML5-native online courseware environment that takes a “learn-by-doing” philosophy to STEM education, utilizing the highly interactive DigitalEd visualization engine that drives online applications for immediate learning-outcome development and assessment. The power of assessments is immediate confirmed understanding of difficult STEM-based topics in real time. This type of power is necessary to ensure the high level of learning outcomes that is possible within the environment. Instructors can easily create and share their own assessments and modify any lesson, assessment, or interactive activity, and share with their students or the wider Möbius user community. In addition, unlike traditional learning technologies, textbook exposition, interactives, and assessment are all “in line” so that students are presented with a unified learning environment, keeping them firmly focused on the topic at hand.
Physics is all around us. From taking a walk to driving your car, from microscopic processes to the enormity of space, and in the everchanging technology of our modern world, we encounter physics daily. As physics is a subject we are constantly immersed in and is used to forge tomorrow’s most exciting discoveries, our goal is to remove the intimidation factor of physics and replace it with a sense of curiosity and wonder. Physics for Scientists and Engineers takes this approach using inspirational examples and applications to bring physics to life in the most relevant and real ways for its students. The text is written with Canadian students and instructors in mind and is informed by Physics Education Research (PER) with international context and examples. Physics for Scientists and Engineers gives students unparalleled practice opportunities and digital support to foster student comprehension and success.
- *NEW* Gauss's Law now has its own devoted chapter.
- *NEW* Coverage of Electricity & Magnetism and Mechanics has been updated and improved.
- *NEW* Additional problems were added throughout for even more practice opportunities.
- Key Equations help students differentiate fundamental relationships from those that are used in steps of derivations or examples.
- Written by students for students, Peer to Peer boxes provide useful tips for navigating difficult concepts.
- Online Activity Boxes provide interactive activities which will help with concept development. Many of these are matched to the physics education research-validated PhETs.
- Learning Objectives are numbered and directive goals or outcomes that the student should take away from the chapter. Each Learning Objective corresponds to major sections within the chapter.
- Opening Vignettes at the beginning of each chapter introduce topics through an interesting and engaging real-life example that pertains to the chapter's subject matter.
- Making Connections boxes are provided in a narrative format and contain concise examples from international contexts, the history of physics, daily life, and other sciences.
