This book is the product of more than half a century of innovations in the teaching of physics. When he appeared he was regarded as revolutionary among calculation-based textbooks, for his emphasis on the fundamental principles of physics and how to apply them. The success of University Physics among generations of students and educators around the world is a testament to the merits of this approach. In the preparation of this eleventh edition we have improved and expanded University Physics with the purpose of emphasizing two key objectives: helping the student acquire a conceptual understanding and facilitating the acquisition of solid problem-solving skills. Troubleshooting techniques have been expanded and enhanced, using an innovative four-step approach that helps bridge the gap between solved examples and task problems. Pedagogy has been enhanced by adding them to more visual chapters and conceptual questions, as well as paragraphs of "Care" that help avoid common mistakes. The software, ActivPhysics, offers a very extensive library of more than 220 complementary interactive programs and activities covering all physics topics. It includes interactive conceptual exercises that encourage the student to attack common mistakes, reason qualitatively, and think critically. This excellent computer program is available to readers of this book in www.pearsoneducacion.net/sears
