Targeting university physics for life sciences courses
University Physics for Life Sciences helps premed students understand the connection between physics and biology. By blending light calculus-based physics with biology and consistently presenting the medical application, students see the relevance and real-world application of physics to their career. Informed by Physics Education Research (PER), Knight/Jones/Field and contributor Catherine Crouch prepare life-science students for success on the MCAT by showing the connections between true biology and physics principles.
