Abstract: This research attempts to describe how biology students' integrate equations with disciplinary concepts. First, I assess how students' explanations of biological phenomena change after solving word problems and receiving feedback from a quantitative simulation. Then, I describe a novel learning environment for further exploring design principles that support students in integrating equations with conceptual knowledge. With biology careers increasingly demanding mathematical approaches, students are better prepared to enter these careers if they can integrate equations with conceptual knowledge.
