  Description Recent high-level reports such as BIO2010 and the HHMI/AAMC's Scientific Foundations for Future Scientists have emphasized the need for life science undergraduate majors to be taught a much higher level of quantitative reasoning and further for them to make connections between material taught in biology with that taught in physics, chemistry, and mathematics. An important enabling and motivating factor for this is a laboratory experience that explicitly connects physics concepts and reasoning to important problems in the life sciences. In this ½ day workshop, we will make available, for hands-on use, a number of class-tested laboratories. Participants will acquire and analyze data on their own laptops (either mac or windows OS) and by so doing will take away software, their data, and other materials from the workshop. Participants without laptops will be paired with a partner bringing a laptop.
