Algebra-based introductory physics for life science majors has a different taste from other introductory classes; namely, most of the students have little idea of why they are taking physics as a requirement class. Therefore, it is challenging to teach them for the instructors. The laboratory part of the class has the same issue. The purposes of this project have twofold: to solve educational and facilitative issues mainly based on laboratory curriculum; and to improve students' understanding toward physics and other sciences for their life-long learning experiences.
