Duch, Barbara J.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v15 n5 p326-29 Mar-Apr 1996
Describes an honors general physics course designed to demonstrate to students that physics is vital to their understanding of physiology, medicine, the human body, rehabilitation, and other health fields. Presents evidence that indicates that active group learning and connections to real-world applications help students learn physics and apply that knowledge appropriately. (JRH)
