Write one paragraph defending each of these two points of view. One doc- ument you might find interesting to look at is “Bio2010” from the National Academy of Sciences. Next, make a syllabus for the course. Start with one brief paragraph on the mission of your course. Issues that you might want to consider include: is it important to do hard calculations, or is that the province of other physics courses and our goal here is to illustrate the style of thinking? Are esti- mates a part of the way you will present the material (if yes, why, if no, why not?). How will you organize the material - note that in typical biology books DNA and actin would never be in the same chapter but for PBoC they are both in chap. 10 as examples of ”beam theory”. The course is only 10 weeks long. What will you cover, what will you skip and why? How will you balance the desire to cover more topics with the resulting superficiality? This is not a look up something in Wikipedia question, nor is it a request to regurgitate what I did in the course. It is asking you how to organize a new and unfinished topic and to present it to advanced Caltech undergrads and to grad students at the beginning of their grad careers. What are the important points? 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
