  1. Background for the Mayes and Dauer brainstorm

    Bob and I have a little time at the workshop to describe discussions we have had since the last meeting. We have been thinking about pilot research and also potential grant proposals. He and I have grounded our discussions in his learning progression framework on quantitative reasoning. In...

  2. Images with Quantitative Aspects

    In our JC yesterday, one of the ideas that came up was being explicit about the quantitative aspects of models.  Bob Mayes shared a set of images we could explore with this goal in mind.  There is a doc with the images posted in Projects/JC - where all the papers are posted.  Take...

  3. Example Modules

    In our meeting today we decided it would be a valuable product and exercise for the working group to generate modules demonstrating how to teach basic biological topics (such as genetic inheritance) using models.  This exercise will help us understand using models in biology class...

  4. Review of Paper (Discussed 12/14/15) "From Biology to Mathematical Models and Back: Teaching Modeling to Biology Students, and Biology to Math and Engineering Students" by Chiel, McManus, and Shaw

    In this article, the authors describe a course they developed that "teaches modeling to biology students, and biology to math and engineering students," as the title suggests.  Students were recruited primarily through advertising and e-mails to department chairs.  To...
