Many instructors face real challenges when teaching quantitative topics in biology - their students can be fearful, disconnected, and disengaged. These student responses are not surprising given the negative experiences many had as children.
BIOMAAP materials can be easily added to existing courses and curricula.
Interventions can range from a few short outside of class activities, to weekly in-class faculty- or peer-led activities.
BIOMAAP offers resources to help biology students overcome their fears and engage with the quantitative content that is often a stumbling block to persisting in STEM.
