FMN: QB@CC: Breathing Life (Science) into Your Math Courses
|Category:||Faculty Mentoring Network|
“When am I ever going to use this?!” Math educators hear this question time and time again. Quantitative Biology at Community Colleges (QB@CC), a 5-year NSF RCN-UBE funded project, is here to help! Interdisciplinary teams of math and biology faculty from community colleges across the country have created an ever-growing library of modules that bridge mathematics and biology concepts.
If you want to incorporate examples from life science into your mathematics courses but have either struggled to find authentic applications or feared stepping out of your comfort zone, then QB@CC’s Fall 2021 Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN) is for you! As a member of the FMN, you will implement two of the QB@CC modules in your courses in the Fall with the support of your fellow FMN participants and two faculty mentors.
The FMN will meet every other week for an hour or less from late September through early December. As a participant, you will earn a certificate of completion at the end of the FMN provided that you:
The deadline to apply for the FMN is September 10th, 2021 but we encourage you to apply now! Space is limited; only 15 participants will be selected.
