I am planning to use OpenStax Physics for my algebra-based College Physics Course beginning in the fall of 2017. I am reviewing the book and associated materials. In particular, I am curious if instructors have used WebAssign or one of the other partner resources for web-based homework.

Until now, I have been using the textbook by Knight, with Mastering Physics.

If anyone has used web-based homework with OpenStax Physics, I would be very interested in pros and cons.

Hi Jeanette & all,

Our department is also preparing to adopt College Physics by OpenStax for our algebra-based physics PH101+PHY102 starting Fall 17. 

I cannot find a list of answers to the end-of-the-chapter problems. We were using Serway & Vuille, and you can traditionally find the answers to the odd-numbered problems at the end of the book. I was hoping OpenStax version would be similar...

Does anybody know where to find a list of asnwers for even or odd-numbered problems (or both)? I don't mean the solutions step-by-step (that's in the instruction manual), I mean just the final answer, really. We usually provide the students with those final answers.

Thanks so much,

Glenda (
