Physics Faculty Publish on Essential Physics for Non-Physics Majors

John Matolyak and Ajawad Haija, Physics Department, recently had their non-calculus general physics textbook published.

Entitled “Essential Physics,” the book was published by CRC/Taylor & Francis Group and released in January 2014.

The textbook is designed for a two-semester algebra-based physics course directed at science majors and stresses the physics essentials needed by students in the sciences who are not physics majors.

Matolyak is professor emeritus of Physics, and Ajawad Haija is currently a professor of Physics at IUP.
