This two-volume modern textbook for introductory calculus-based college physics courses emphasizes qualitative as well as quantitative reasoning, and puts heavy emphasis on atomic-level description and analysis. Its goals are to stress the basic principles of physics, engage students in modeling, and include 20th century applications. The web site provides extensive resources for instructors using the texts, including software, discussion forums, instructional activities, and lecture notes.
