Fundamentals of Physics, Part 1 (Chapters 1-11)
David Halliday - 1993
Powered by Wiley's EduGen system, this site includes a vast array of high-quality content including: Homework Management: An Assignment tool allows instructors to create student homework and quizzes, using dynamic versions of end-of-chapter problems from Fundamentals of Physics or their own dynamic questions. Instructors may also assign readings, activities, and other work for students to complete. A Gradebook automatically grades and records student assignments. This not only saves time, but also provides students with immediate feedback on their work. Each student can view his or her results from past assignments at any time. An Administration tool allows instructors to manage their class rosters on-line. A Prepare and Present tool contains a variety of the Wiley-provided resources (including all the book illustrations, Java applets, and digitized video) to help make preparation time more efficient. instructors to meet the needs of each course. Self-Assessment. A Study and Practice area links directly to the multimedia version of Fundamental of Physics, allowing students to review the text while they study and complete homework assignments. In addition to the complete on-line text, students can also access the Student Solutions Manual, the Student Study Guide, interactive simulations, and the Interactive LearningWare Program. Interactive LearningWare. Interactive LearningWare leads the student step-by-step through solutions to 200 of the end-of-chapter problems from the text. And there's lots more! You'll need to see it to believe it. Check out the Halliday/Resnick/Walker site at: www wiley.com/college/halliday
Principles of Foundation Engineering
Braja M. Das - 1984
Das' Sixth Edition of PRINCIPLES OF FOUNDATION ENGINEERING maintains the careful balance of current research and practical field applications that has made it the leading text in foundation engineering courses. Featuring a wealth of worked-out examples and figures that help students with theory and problem-solving skills, the book introduces civil engineering students to the fundamental concepts and application of foundation analysis design. Throughout, Das emphasizes the judgment needed to properly apply the theories and analysis to the evaluation of soils and foundation design as well as the need for field experience. The sixth edition contains many new homework and worked-out problems.
