PFR_front.jpg This first of its kind in 300 years textbook will enlighten you and your students. For advanced high school students and college freshmen. This textbook by Dr. Anthony Rizzi presents the fundamentals of Newtonian Mechanics to the college undergraduate or the advanced high school student in a way that taps the student's common sense. Starting with things we see directly, it leads the student to a deep understanding of the best in modern theory. Each chapter builds on the previous one in a simple way to the crescendo of special relativity, drawing the student at each step into the excitement of physics. This profound unity of principle is complemented by a unity of practice through the challenge of a manned mission to Mars by AD 2030, which is the current commitment of the US. Real world problems and examples salt the text, helping the student to ground his thinking and see the importance of physics to everyday life. It is the hope of the IAP that this approach will make the rigorous,scientific content at once engaging and challenging to both those interested in careers in the hard sciences and also those not traditionally attracted to mathematics and the hard sciences. (Prerequisite: Calculus) "...Rizzi has done an excellent job and I highly recommend that you experience this text..." AAPT's The Physics Teacher Vol. 47, May 2009

PFR-EM_cover-small.jpg This second volume in the Physics for Realists Series grounds electricity and magnetism in common sense, making the material both more accessible and memorable. Through this approach, Dr. Anthony Rizzi leads the student to a deep understanding of the best in modern theory. Each chapter builds on the previous one in a simple way to the double crescendo of electromagnetic radiation and the relativistic underpinnings of electromagnetism. This profound unity of principle is complemented by a unity of practice through the challenge of understanding, designing and building a radio transmitter! The overarching practical theme of the manned mission to Mars initiated in volume one is continued. Also, as in the first volume, real world problems and examples salt the text, helping the student to ground his thinking and see the importance of physics to everyday life. Prerequisite: Physics for Realists: Mechanics. N.B.: the common sense approach brings out the primacy of the electric potential and magnetic (vector) potential, which are both used extensively. Dielectrics and Magnetics are both covered. "Physics for Realists is a landmark series that uses our common sense to discover and clarify modern physical theory. The resulting pedagogical approach makes physics more accessible and its beauty more evident. This series will revolutionize our understanding of physics and the way it is taught." -Murray Daw, Bowen Prof. of Physics, Clemson University.

kidsbook This book (70 pages softcover 6"x8" with 14 font) introduces young people to physics starting with their natural wonder about the things around them. It builds on their common sense, making it clear and precise, and shows them how to go from their common sense to the advanced method of modern science. Finally, it shows them the need for the Unchangeable Changer, without which there is nothing. It shows that only through knowing physics do we know about Him. It shows how this world proves that He exists and that He is the Source of all the changing things we see. Readers will learn that physics is the base science and thus essential to all of their thinking. The book is appropriate for children as young as sixth grade but is targeted for seventh and eighth grade. Kids in higher grades and even adults will also enjoy it. This book answers the oft heard questions "Why do I need to learn physics?" and "Why do I need to learn math?" in a direct and charming way.

"This book is simply written in such a way that kids will enjoy reading it. Through their reading, they will discover how relevant and needed the book is to their understanding of the whole world and our place in it. They will discover the big picture that cannot be found anywhere else. Everyone should read this book."
