Consistent with previous editions of An Introduction to Physical Science, the goal of the new Thirteenth edition is to stimulate studentsa€™ interest in and gain knowledge of the physical sciences. Presenting content in such a way that students develop the critical reasoning and problem-solving skills that are needed in an ever-changing technological world, the authors emphasize fundamental concepts as they progress through the five divisions of physical sciences: physics, chemistry, astronomy, meteorology, and geology.
