1- Connecting Math and Quantitative Skills With Concepts Learned in Class – Why Bother?
September 28, 2016, 3:00 PM EST
There has been a lot of research into math education and why it is important. Frameworks for quantitative reasoning tell us that students’ progress from basic skills such as measuring and quantifying, using fundamental mathematical concepts, data interpretation and finally modeling or creating representations for this data. How can we help microbiology students along this pathway? Perhaps, your students are already using quantitative skills without even knowing it. Where do you find the gaps in student knowledge or resistance from students in using math skills? Learn more about getting your students over well-known barriers to learning in these areas.
