Abstract:
Effectively teaching an Introductory Physics for Life Science (IPLS) course means engaging life science students in a subject for which they may not have considerable preexisting interest. We have found that the inclusion of topical examples of relevance to life-science students can help to engage students whose initial interest in physics is less developed, but that different examples and models vary in their effectiveness.
