Bringing math to the high school biology classroom
Teachers! Get more comfortable with the quantitative side of biology in this hands-on workshop!
Dates: July 20-22, 2015
Location: University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN. Financial support for travel and lodging is available.
The program will feature hands-on experience with inquiry activities that use real data, 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 tutorial/workshop is a partnership of the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium, a 29-year biology education reform community that focuses on helping faculty develop and implement innovative curricula, and the National Institute for Mathematical Biology Synthesis (NIMBioS).
