This tutorial/workshop focused on getting comfortable with the quantitative side of biology.
The program featured hands-on experience with inquiry activities that used real data, tools for graphing, modeling, and much more. The University of Tennessee's popular Biology in a Box supplied some of the activities integrating math and science. Participants worked collaboratively to add or enrich the quantitative aspects of their favorite biology lab.
The tutorial/workshop was led by the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium, a 25-year biology education reform community that focuses on helping faculty develop and implement innovative curricula.
