Teaching Physics to the Life Science Student

Professor Catherine Crouch, Swarthmore College
Professor Brian Jones, Colorado State University

In this session, Professors Catherine Crouch and Brian Jones share experiences in adapting courses to better meet the needs of life science students, leading to enhanced physics understanding, interest, and appreciation of the value of physics. They'll also show that this can be done while keeping a physics class very much a physics class, and without requiring the instructor to have extensive background in the life sciences.
