Recent publications in biomaths/stats

  • The Association for Science Education have recently published a really useful guide aimed at secondary school teachers but I think it will also prove to be very useful in HE and FE. It’s called the “Language of Mathematics in Science” and it’s a really useful guide which tries to explain the different language used by maths teachers and science teachers in schools.  Available from http://www.ase.org.uk/resources/maths-in-science/

 

 

 

 

  • And finally…. from last year…  the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry published “Bridging the skills gap in the biopharmaceutical industry Maintaining the UK’s leading position in life sciences November 2015” which calls for a greater awareness of the mathematical and statistical requirements in the industry and increased inclusion of maths and stats through school and university. http://www.abpi.org.uk/our-work/library/industry/Documents/Skills_Gap_Industry.pdf

About JennyAKoenig

I specialise in science education and communication. Projects have included maths education for bioscientists, study skills for scientists with specific learning difficulties and pharmacology: bringing the science behind how medicines work (or don't!) to a wider audience. I have a PhD in Pharmacology from the University of Cambridge and a BSc (Hons 1) from the University of Sydney. Until Sept 2015 I divided my time between my science education and communication consultancy Science ETC (see www.sci-etc.co.uk) and teaching at Lucy Cavendish College (where I was a Fellow). I am now a secondary science and maths teacher.
