Unique Problem Solving Method

This textbook teaches students to use a proven effective problem-solving methodology.

(Insert Icon)

The consistent use of this special problem-solving method trains students to make a sketch, identify the data elements, select the appropriate equation, solve for the unknown quantity, and substitute the data in the working equation. An icon that outlines the method is placed in the margin of most problem sets as a reminder to students.
