Abstract In the broader context of mathematics education for biologists, we describe a course on mathematical modeling that we recently designed and ran for an audience comprising of research biologists. We describe how the audience responded to the course and their feedback at the end of the course. We discuss how math-phobia of this type of audience may be fruitfully dealt with.
Keywords Mathematical Modeling and simulation, mathematics in biology, mathematics education for biologists, biology education, math-phobia, course design
