This workshop is for faculty interested in addressing the gap between mathematics and its application in biological problem solving. To support the observation, experimentation and modeling of data, the Numbers Count workshop will provide an introduction to data, tools, and curricular materials for use with undergraduates. We will also address the lack of context that impedes student learning—students rightfully ask themselves why should they need to integrate arcsin x if they want to become a physician?
