What’s this about?

I’ve started this blog to keep track of things I’ve been working on in relation to teaching mathematics within biological sciences in Higher Education. I wanted to pull together articles, information and comments on some of the following points:

1- It seems like everyone is saying there is a decline in the mathematical skills of new undergraduates. What is the evidence for this?

2- Does it really matter if biological sciences graduates can’t do much maths? What do employers think?

3- What is being done at University level to try to address this issue?

4- Does it really matter for the graduates going into biological sciences research?

5- How can we improve biomaths education in HE?

6 – Can we get mathematicians to speak in english rather than mathglish?
