520 _a For algebra-based introductory physics courses taken primarily by pre-med, agricultural, technology, and architectural students, this book presents biological applications and a fresh pedagogy. It aims at giving students the basic concepts of physics in a manner that is accessible and clear, to view the world through the eyes that know physics.
