  Description: John Wiley & Sons is pleased to announce the release of the third edition of Matter & Interactions by Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood. This two-semester, calculus-based physics course offers students a remarkably coherent introduction to mechanics, thermal physics and electricity and magnetism by integrating elements of contemporary physics, including the atomic structure of matter, and by emphasizing the use of fundamental physics principles to construct models of physical systems that predict or explain their structure or behavior. This workshop will discuss many of the most striking and effective features of this curriculum. It will also present the positive experiences of faculty at the growing number large research universities that are using Matter & Interactions to teach introductory physics to all of their engineering and science students. The workshop leader is a professor of physics at Purdue University, one of the institutions using Matter & Interactions in this way.
