The Numb3r5 Count! Project focuses on biological problem solving. It offers faculty workshops and supports open resources developed as a part of the project. Quantitative reasoning is like many other skills. It requires practice and an appreciation for the utility of mathematical tools and strategies. Faculty and students in biology must grapple with mathematical models, tools, and insights as they engage in the study of biological science.
The mission of the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) project is to improve learning opportunities for all students enrolled in undergraduate biology courses by reflecting the centrality of quantitative approaches in modern biology [more info about QUBES]. One of the ways that QUBES promotes quantitative approaches is by partnering with existing projects and communities to facilitate the discovery and use of their materials [more info about partner projects].
Numb3r5 Count! and QUBES have joined forces to:
