This web site contains an algebra-based physics curriculum in which physics concepts are introduced through studies of human physiology. It contains a collection of modules covering a wide range of topics in physics, each using examples from human biological processes. Modules include Biomechanics and Modeling Human Motion, Modeling Human Vision, Modeling Human Speech and Hearing, Circulatory and Respiratory Systems, and more. A key element of the pedagogy is the embedding of mathematical models within practical disciplines, such as physiology and biomedical engineering. Students will engage in "real-world" scenarios to solve inquiry-based physics problems.
These materials are based on an interactive pedagogy and include use of multimedia and mathematical modeling. These resources have been tested in classes and assessed.
