Abstract
Physics textbooks until now only contain a tangle of concepts and principles. This study aimed to describe the importance of linking physics concepts and principles in textbooks with character values, social and spiritual attitudes. This research was conducted in 27 SMAs from 9 Regencies in Bali. Its subjects are 27 principals of the SMAs, 54 physics teachers, and 540 SMA's students. The responses of the subjects to the developed physics textbook were collected by questionnaire and analyzed descriptively. The results of the analysis showed that the physics concepts and principles in the textbooks are very important to connect with associated character values, social and spiritual attitudes. The Principals and teachers said that these are needed as a medium of learning physics which are meaningful for the students in order to be able to construct good character as well as good social and spiritual attitudes. So physics textbooks become meaningful.
