ips_cover_800x1000.jpg The premier inquiry-based physical science textbook is now available for Apple, Kindle, and Android platforms! Schools, teachers, students, and parents can purchase the Ninth Edition of Introductory Physical Science as an ebook from either the iTunes Bookstore (recommended for Apple devices) or the Kindle Bookstore (recommended for Kindle, PC, and Android devices).

All of the features found in the published hard-bound textbook are present in the ebook, and more!


Features present in both the printed and electronic versions of IPS include...


In addition, with the Introductory Physical Science ebook, students can...


Teachers – help relieve your students of the burden of overloaded backpacks!

Schools – encourage students to use their textbooks at home!
