Does working with first- and second-hand ecological data improve students' knowledge of ecological ideas, motivation and engagement in science, data exploration, and citizenship skills (students' ability to make informed decisions)? We have been exploring this question with high school science teachers in New York State for the past year using a framework that targets key concepts and skills in data exploration. Here, we share one curriculum unit as a model for integrating quantitative reasoning skills into the ecology classroom.
