Every year, thousands of college students in the life sciences take introductory physics. Some educators have advocated physics be presented in a way that is relevant to these students. Most are biology majors, but many students are in the allied health field studying to become athletic trainers, occupational therapists, or professionals in some other allied health field. These students take a physics course that often has no math prerequisites, covers all of classical physics in a year, and focuses on the physics of the human body.
