Biology by Numbers: Bringing Math
to the High School Biology Classroom
Dates: July 23-25, 2014 (8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, and 8 a.m. - noon Friday)
Location: NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
- Kristin Jenkins, Executive Director, BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium
- John Jungck, Director, Interdisciplinary Science Learning Laboratories, Affiliate of the Bioinformatics Program, University of Delaware
Now in progress: a workshop focused on getting comfortable with the quantitative side of biology.
The program features hands-on experience with inquiry activities that use real data, tools for graphing, modeling, and much more. The University of Tennessee's popular Biology in a Box will supply some of the activities integrating math and science. Participants will work collaboratively to add or enrich the quantitative aspects of their favorite biology lab.
The workshop is led by the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium, a 25-year biology education reform community that focuses on helping faculty develop and implement innovative curricula.
