Our session aims to reflect upon the uses of mathematical biology as a teaching tool in mathematics lessons in both higher education and prior to university. Our speakers are experienced teachers who demonstrate engaging students in mathematical biology research with successful outreach activities. Furthermore, the speakers discuss enhancing pedagogical practices of teachers with their research and understanding the transition of knowledge into undergraduate education. Good pedagogical practice in both schools and universities of the UK and the US is visited in this session with an aim to share good practice in teaching mathematics with applications from the biological sciences.
