Making Biomath Happen University of Arizona (2012)

The National Academy of Sciences call in BIO2010 has led to the creative energy behind many new innovations in curriculum in mathematics courses, life sciences courses and interdisciplinary courses. The University of Arizona hosted a conference in June, 2012 “” which includes online resources.

Using Data in Undergraduate Science Classrooms Carleton College Science Education Resource Center (2003)

The project provides information and discussion for educators and resource developers interested in effective teaching methods and pedagogical approaches for using data in the classroom. Great starting point for exploring what works.

MathBench Biology Modules (University of Maryland )

Introduces students to the mathematical underpinnings of what they learn in introductory biology courses. Their goal is to integrate quantitative approaches and mathematics more deeply into the undergraduate curriculum in a way that (1) reinforces biological concepts, (2) increases math literacy, and (3) prepares students for more complicated mathematical approaches in upper-level courses.

Numbers Count (University of Minnesota – Rochester)

The focus is on biological problem solving with data.  Faculty workshop and classroom resources include biological data (Excel files, images, and FASTA format text files), introductory mathematical modules for biology and chemistry, concepts in statistics mapped to individual modules, our workshop resources (materials, tools, data, powerpoints, and participant products), course materials for Calculus and Freshman Statistics, and links to sites focusing on datamodeling toolsand visualization.

Special Issue of CBE—Life Sciences Education

http://www.lifescied.org/content/9/3.toc

Welcome to this special issue of CBE—Life Sciences Education! The national scientific and academic community has issued repeated clarion calls for revising college biology curricula and the mathematical and computational preparation for future life scientists to reflect the tools and practices of science. This issue celebrates progress on incorporating quantitative reasoning into biology courses and integrating biological exemplars into mathematics courses. Within the 17 articles, seven essays, and seven features, readers find examples of innovative undergraduate research programs that emerged from research collaborations between biologists and mathematicians as well as collaborations initiated by either biologists or mathematicians. Other articles and essays illustrate collaborations between biologists and quantitative scientists that have resulted in new courses, new majors, textbooks, and modules that highlight and celebrate progress toward the BIO2010 vision.

USING DATA IN UNDERGRADUATE SCIENCE CLASSROOMS:                     USING DATA IN OUR CLASSES AND LABS

http://serc.carleton.edu/files/usingdata/UsingData.pdf

Focuses learning on the process of science while capitalizing on new opportunities created by data-sharing and web technology. This report summarizes discussions of 26 faculty from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and National Science Digital Library (NSDL) project Principal Investigators to better define why, how, and to what effect faculty use datain the classroom. The workshop goals were to advance the effective use of data in the classroom, to support inquiry- and discovery-based learning, to identify common practices in the use of data among the science disciplines as well as their special needs, and to inform the design of online data-delivery tools.

A century after the United States crossed the threshold into universal secondary education we are crossing a quite different threshold into universal postsecondary education. Consequently, society now expects of higher education what in the early twentieth century it asked of secondary schools, namely, to prepare students for civic and economic life. In contrast to that earlier time, however, our age is dominated by computers and data, not factory assembly lines. These changes in society have created an urgent demand for multifaceted literacy far more sophisticated than what previously served as the foundation of today’s curriculum.This greater demand for higher order competencies is nowhere more apparent than in the area of quantitative literacy (QL). Although no less important for all citizens than fluency in reading and writing, quantitative literacy too often continues to be the province of the few. Indeed, for too long, our educational system has produced a scientific and mathematical elite while failing to nurture the literate citizenry required for robust democracy. As a result, the gap between expert and citizen has widened dangerously, most notably when numbers and data are brought to bear in deciding public and private issues – and one can scarcely think of an issue in contemporary life where this is not the case.

Scientific Thinking and Integrative Reasoning Skills (STIRS) http://www.aacu.org/stirs/

OverviewTo become engaged and productive citizens prepared to address the critical challenges of the 21st century, college graduates in all fields of study need to be able to:

  • Use scientific reasoning to gather and evaluate evidence
  • Understand how scientific and social science studies are designed and executed and recognize  the implications of design choices
  • Use statistical reasoning to evaluate data and use data to communicate effectively
  • Base decisions on analysis of evidence, logic, and ethics

Interdisciplinarity: The Right People, a Supportive Place, and a Program Emerges

CBE Life Sci Educ June 3, 2013 12:140143; doi:10.1187/cbe.13-01-0001

This paper describes the St. Olaf College experience moving to a more interdisciplinary approach to student learning. The authors place this within the context of the three “P”s of higher education—people, place, and program. The key for transformation resided in focusing on the people and the place. In so doing, an interdisciplinary program emerged.

Learning Each Other’s Ropes: Negotiating Interdisciplinary Authenticity

CBE Life Sci Educ June 3, 2013 12:175186; doi:10.1187/cbe.12-09-0147

This article considers a multiyear conversation between a physicist interested in adapting a physics course for biologists and a biologist interested in including more physics in a biology course. Examples are given, along with insights developed about the different approaches biologists and physicists tend to take toward the same phenomena.

Context Dependence of Students’ Views about the Role of Equations in Understanding Biology

CBE Life Sci Educ June 3, 2013 12:274286; doi:10.1187/cbe.12-11-0185

The authors show how students’ views about what counts as learning in biology can be context-dependent. They examine an interview in which a student expressed two different views about the use of equations in biology. The results highlight how a given student can have diverse ways of thinking about the value of bringing physics and math into biology.

8 Responses to Resources

  1. Ethel Stanley says:

    I’d like to recommend the Biological ESTEEM collection of Excel modules as a resource. Each module includes a downloadable Excel (.xls) file, references to textbooks where the relevant biology and mathematics are introduced, the original sources of such models, current research articles that employ the models explicitly or derivatives of these models, and online related resources. In some instances, additional documentation, other software (particularly Java Applets and remotely run Web Mathematica applications), classroom-lab-field activities, science and mathematics education research references, and historical material are also provided.

  2. There are a lot of resources we may all want to revisit.
    Bio 2010 http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?isbn=0309085357 suggests:
    “Quantitative analysis, modeling, and prediction play increasingly significant day-to-day roles in today’s biomedical research. To prepare for this sea change in activities, biology majors headed for research careers need to be educated in a more quantitative manner, and such quantitative education may require the development of new types of courses. The committee recommends that all biology majors master the concepts listed below. In addition, the committee recommends that life science majors become sufficiently familiar with the elements of programming to carry out simulations of physiological, ecological, and evolutionary processes. They should be adept at using computers to acquire and process data, carry out statistical characterization of the data and perform statistical tests, and graphically display data in a variety of representations. Furthermore, students should also become skilled at using the Internet to carry out literature searches, locate published articles, and access major databases.

    The elucidation of the sequence of the human genome has opened new vistas and has highlighted the increasing importance of mathematics and computer science in biology. The intense interest in genetic, metabolic, and neural networks reflects the need of biologists to view and understand the coordinated activities of large numbers of components of the complex systems underlying life. Biology students should be prepared to carry out in silico (computer) experiments to complement in vitro and in vivo experiments. It is essential that biology undergraduates become quantitatively literate. The concepts of rate of change, modeling, equilibria and stability, structure of a system, interactions among components, data and measurement, visualizing, and algorithms are among those most important to the curriculum. Every student should acquire the ability to analyze issues arising in these contexts in some depth, using analytical methods (e.g., pencil and paper), appropriate computational tools, or both. The course of study would include aspects of probability, statistics, discrete models, linear algebra, calculus and differential equations, modeling, and programming.”
