  6. Modelling and simulation: helping students acquire this skill using a Stock and Flow approach with MathBench

    20 Oct 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Istvan Karsai, Katerina V. Thompson, Kären C. Nelson

    Computational and modelling skills are vital to most fields of biological research, yet traditional biology majors have no or little opportunity to develop these skills during their undergraduate education. We describe an approach, which can address this issue by a synergy of...
