Poster Title: Current State of Physics for Life Science Majors at UNK
Abstract: I will present an overview of the current state of physics for life science majors at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.  We have made no major changes to the class itself yet.  We are rather at the assessment stage and are attempting to identify the best path forward.  The state of the health science program in general will be described, as will how physics fits into that picture.  I will also describe remediation methods that are being utilized.  Our current class structure is very traditional, other than the inclusion of peer instruction time.  There is also a testing focus that targets both traditional open-ended problems, as well as answering multiple choice questions mixed with explaining their reasoning on conceptual problems.I present an overview of the current state of physics life science majors at UNK.  We have made no substantive changes to the class itself yet.  We are rather at the assessment stage to identify the best path forward.
