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 take their textbooks home with them!
