Physics Modeling Nature addresses the complaints teachers typically have with many of the current offerings. It is especially suited to STEM programs with a college-preparatory mission. Students who aspire to a technical career will find Modeling Nature to be the best text available with fresh, elucidating illustrations, and a narrative that explains concepts with attention to detail.

Teachers will appreciate the book as a solid reference and lecturing tool. Each chapter includes plenty of exercises and clearly defined learning objectives. And Novare’s trademark integration of the essential historical background enhances awareness of the legacy and present day community of scientists.

Many ask about this book’s suitability to AP Physics. From our FAQ page, “Modeling Nature can be used with the AP Physics 1/2 curriculum. In each case, the text covers the entire AP curriculum with a small number of exceptions.” Read here for more.

Finally, Modeling Nature employs vector calculations and assumes students have completed trigonometry as a prerequisite. Problems in the text are not calculus-based, but since many students will take calculus concurrently with advanced physics, connections between the two are frequently highlighted. Modeling Nature is written with Novare priorities—supporting a mastery-learning paradigm, integrating related subjects, and a Kingdom perspective that inspires wonder in the beauty and complexity of God’s great world.

What's new in the 2nd edition? All revisions for Physics: Modeling Nature 2nd edition were made to reflect the substantial revisions to the metric system, which went into effect in 2019. Learn more about the major metric system changes here.

The Solutions Manual contains the mathematical steps for solving calculation problems in the chapter exercises of Physics: Modeling Nature. It is a useful supplement for students in homeschooling environments or in traditional classrooms.

The Solutions Manual is considered a student resource and only contains solutions for chapter exercises in the textbook (students already have the answers in the text). This manual is useable for all editions of the textbook.

Experiments for Physics: Modeling Nature contains the complete teacher’s instructions for conducting the five lab experiments for our advanced physics text, Physics: Modeling Nature. Each experiment includes a list of Learning Objectives, Materials List, Experimental Purpose, Scientific Overview, Pre-Lab Discussion Points, Student Instructions, any Safety Concerns, and discussion of the use of any special apparatus.
