We gathered information from numerous reviews, class tests, and focus groups. The primary stage of our research began with commissioning reviews from instructors across the United States and Canada. We asked them to submit suggestions for improvement on areas such as content, organization, illustrations, and ancillaries. The detailed comments of these reviewers constituted the basis for the revision plan. indd Sec1:xxx 11/18/08 10:58:48 AM Confirming Pages ACKNOWLEDGMENTS xxxi We organized focus groups across the United States from 2006 through 2008.

S. customary units—sometimes called English units—are still used. The base units for this system are the foot, the second, and the pound. The pound is legally defined in the United States as a unit of mass, but it is also commonly used as a unit of force (in which case it is sometimes called pound-force).

An order of magnitude calculation is done to at most one significant figure. ” Why? Because we can often make a good guess about the correct order of magnitude of the answer to a problem, even before we start solving the problem. If the answer comes out with a different order of magnitude, we go back and search out an error. Suppose a problem concerns a vase that is knocked off a fourth-story window ledge. We can guess by experience the order of magnitude of the time it takes the vase to hit the ground.
