Advanced Physics with Vernier — Beyond Mechanics

Use Vernier probeware to teach concepts at the college physics, AP* Physics, or IB** Physics level. Use it in addition to Advanced Physics with Vernier — Mechanics and Physics with Vernier for a comprehensive set of topics.


Advanced Physics with Vernier – Beyond Mechanics is the second of a two-volume set of experiments for the more in-depth introductory physics course, such as college physics, AP Physics, or IB Physics. Experiments are designed for an interactive teaching style, with planned moments for instructor- or student-led discussion.

Instructor Information sections for each experiment include discussions on how to guide students through a successful activity. The book includes many extensions to challenge the most talented students.

The first book in the series is Advanced Physics with Vernier — Mechanics.
