This best-selling introduction to the physical and life sciences emphasizes concepts over computation and treats equations as a guide to thinking so the reader can connect ideas.

Conceptual Integrated Science covers physics, chemistry, earth science, astronomy, and biology at a level appropriate for non-science students. The conceptual approach relates science to everyday life, is personal and direct, deemphasizes jargon, and emphasizes central ideas. The conceptual ideas serve as the foundation supporting and integrating all the sciences.

The Second Edition now includes MasteringPhysics®–an unrivaled homework, tutorial, and assessment system. Learning objectives have also been added so that students easily see the most important concepts in each chapter. Instructors using MasteringPhysics can assign content that is tied to these book-specific Learning Outcomes. End of chapter problems and questions have been organized according to Bloom’s Taxonomy so instructors can assess students at the correct level.
