Intro to BIOMAAP - Student Introduction (15-20 minutes)
This presentation is intended as a short, in-class introduction to the program and some of the research behind it, in hopes of generating ‘buy in’ for a course-long use of BIOMAAP materials. We highly recommend starting out the semester with this activity, so that students understand the purpose of the activities and how they can benefit from them. The presentation introduces the idea of math anxiety, gives students an example of one of the techniques used in BIOMAAP (metacognition), and presents some of the expected benefits to students.
