When teaching physics, though it is certainly an applicable and relatable subject, it is not as relatable as biology can be. I would like to incorporate more examples of how phsiycs ties in with biology to make the lessons more relatable and interesting for my high school students. Does anyone know of any biological examples that tie in with physics concepts that can be shared with me?

I have used synovial joints and arthritus as an example for friciton and the coefficient of friction. The students seemed to enjoy that one.

Re: Physics and Biology

Physiology of vision - refraction and focus points as they relate to vision issues, changing focus points with lenses (fog machine, light, lens)

Kinesiology - types of levers present in the body

Kinesiology - force couples and vectors of pull (scapular stabilizers are an easy spot to do this)

Anaerobic muscle loading - generation of force

The potential energy of the Achilles tendon (long Achilles vs short Achilles)

Kinesiology - the pulley system present along the hyoid and how it regulates jaw motion is pretty cool

It is also important to understand the committee that you will be writing to. You should definitely do research into the scholarship to find out more information. The ideal student will differ depending on the scholarship essay. You can find out more about which type of students they usually tend to accept, and this will allow you to modify your essay based on this requirements. However, you shouldn’t lose your own identity in this process. It is crucial to let your authentic self be present in all of the essays. Instead of writing what you think they are looking for, you should present the true version of you. Take a close look at all of your strengths and figure out what the best way to write about them would be. This can be easily changed based on which scholarship you are applying for.

Wow! I haven't thought that I can do something to integrate Physic to Bio. Looks like I need to do some brainstorming. click here

Dollar General made a strategy by which they are adding to the development of the country. This is significant for an individual also.

Re: Physics and Biology

Physics and biology has never been my strong subjects. I once wrote 123helpme essay review about them and people did not like them. I just don’t know what to write about these subjects, I am just not good at them to be honest.

Sometimes this just isn’t possible. Some students may not grasp the concepts, or they may not have the time to complete assignments. They may seek out the best MBA essay writing services for help. However, the problem is that there are many services, but not all of them offer the best standard. MBAs are rigorous and these means assignments have to be professional and properly referenced. Many students also seek out MBA essay editing services to help them craft existing assignments into something that is more suitable.
