Summit Goals

1. Consider what student work on quantitative reasoning (QR) tells us about teacher expectations, student learning, and student success in the life sciences.
2. Gain a greater understanding of how we approach instruction and assessment of QR at all levels. 
3. Consider how current QR practices enhance expectations of Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards.
4. Continue fostering conversation and collaboration across secondary and postsecondary levels after this summit.
