NIMBioS/BioQUEST Tutorial

Biology by Numbers: Bringing Math
to the High School Biology Classroom CANCELED

Dates: July 20-22, 2015   CANCELED

Location: NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Organizers and Presenters:

Hey high school biology teachers — got math? Join us for a workshop focused on getting comfortable with the quantitative side of biology.

The program will feature hands-on experience with inquiry activities that use real data, tools for graphing, modeling, and much more. The University of Tennessee's popular Biology in a Box will supply some of the activities integrating math and science. Participants will work collaboratively to add or enrich the quantitative aspects of their favorite biology lab.

The tutorial/workshop will be led by the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium, a 25-year biology education reform community that focuses on helping faculty develop and implement innovative curricula.
