Poster Title: Introductory Physics for the Life Sciences at East Stroudsburg University
Abstract: At ESU, we examined three objectives of an IPLS course: (A) one where students are shown the physics equations that can be used in relevant situations, (B) One where students are shown how mathematical techniques (like vectors, scaling, equations and graphing) can be applied to their discipline and (C) One where students are shown how to use a small set of principles to analyze a wide variety of problems.  The poster illustrate this, the potential conflict, and our reasons for deciding to focus almost exclusively on C.
