Many state science standards encourage the use of mathematics and statistics in biology education, including the newly designed AP Biology course, IB Biology, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Common Core. This guide was conceived to help biology teachers implement math and statistics in the classroom. It is not meant to be a textbook of statistics; it covers topics most relevant to high school biology, focusing on methods and examples rather than theory. The document also includes a chart of activities on the BioInteractive website that use several of the math and statistics methods covered in this guide.

A first draft of the guide was published in July 2014. It was revised on January 2015 based on user feedback and expert review, and with links to additional BioInteractive resources. Subsequent versions of the guide will include the ANOVA test and guidelines for using spreadsheet programs to calculate statistics and graph data.
