Welcome to the website for Physics - The First Science.


We now have WebAssign available. There is also a complete answer and solutions manual for instructors. Write to us or to the Rutgers University Press for information.


This is an algebra-based introductory physics textbook. Its aim is to change the established patterns of physics teaching!

From the navigation bar on the left you can go to the Preface including the title page, the table of contents, and additional notes that describe why we wrote the book and what's in it. Here you will find some help with navigating the contents of the book..

From there you can also go to Chapters 1 and 6 and to the current flyer that includes ordering information (with a discount!), appreciative quotes from Nobel Prize winners, high school teachers, and others, and some information about us.

We are particularly happy with the three reviews that you can access from the navigation bar.

The image on this page is an ad that appeared in Physics Today. There were also ads in the American Journal of Physics and The Physics Teacher.
