Modern Physics intertwines active learning pedagogy with the material typically covered in an introductory survey, from the basics of relativity and quantum mechanics through recent developments in particle physics and cosmology. The flexible approach taken by the authors allows instructors to easily incorporate as much or as little active learning into their teaching as they choose. Chapters are enhanced by ' Discovery' and ' Active Reading' exercises to guide students through key ideas before or during class, while ' ConcepTests' help check student understanding and stimulate classroom discussions. Each chapter also includes extensive assessment material, with a range of basic comprehension questions, drill and practice calculations, computer-based problems, and explorations of advanced applications. A test bank and interactive animations as well as other support for instructors and students are available online. Students are engaged by an accessible and lively writing style, thorough explanations, ' Math Interludes' which account for varying levels of skill and experience, and advanced topics to further pique their interest in physics.
Gary Felder is a Professor of Physics at Smith College, Massachusetts. His research has focused on inflationary cosmology, numerical simulations and the development of computer and written tools for teaching physics concepts. In 2017 he received an SGA Faculty Teaching Award from Smith' s Student Government Association in recognition of his excellent teaching and positive impact on the student body. His paper ' The Effects of Personality Type on Engineering Student Performance and Attitudes' received the American Society for Engineering Education 2003 ' Best Paper of the Year' Award. Kenny Felder has taught physics and math at Raleigh Charter High, North Carolina, for more than twenty years. He received his Bachelor' s degree in Physics with highest honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His book Advanced Algebra II pioneered much of the active learning pedagogy included in this textbook and was described by the Connexions project at Rice University as ' a non-traditional approach to a very traditional subject' that makes ' the world of second-year algebra come alive. ' He and Gary Felder also co-authored Mathematical Methods in Engineering and Physics (2016).
