Statement on Use

The lesson plans available at the Biophysical Society web site have been designed for use under supervised instruction. Although the lesson plans in general do not require harmful materials or procedures, reasonable care should be taken when performing procedures such as heating liquids or weighing out chemical substances. It is the view of the Biophysical Society that taking reasonable precautions while performing the procedures posted at this site is the responsibility of those who use the materials from this site.

The BASICS: Biophysics – A Step-by-Step Introduction to Concepts for Students is a series of lesson plans designed for high school teachers and students; one lesson plan is adapted for K-6. The lesson plans introduce biophysical concepts, including Diffusion, Viscosity, Elasticity, and Experimental Error, with easy-to-perform experiments to illustrate the concepts. The lesson plans are available in Spanish, as well as English. We hope that these lesson plans excite both teachers and students, and inspire students to consider biophysics as a course of study during their college careers.
