Welcome to the Humanized Physics Project Web Site.
This site contains resources designed to help physics teachers use
the human body as a context for teaching physics, particularly at
the introductory level. We have a library of classroom tested activities
and labs, descriptions of revised courses using the human body theme,
and other resources.
The Activity/Lab Library
contains student and instructor guides for activities covering most
topics in the algebra-based introductory sequence.
The Course Descriptions
page contains information on courses using the human body theme at
a variety of institutions.
The Resources page contains
video and animations used in many of the acitivities, complete contents
of the Understanding Human Motion CD, the Studies in
Motion Laser Disc, and the textbook Physics Including Human
Applications by Fuller3.
Background information on the project including some
discussion of the pedagogical underpinnings is available on the About
