About Animals, Numbers and Teaching: Linking Mathematics and Biology in Evolution
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology,
The implications of Charles Darwin’s studies on evolution reach many areas of knowledge. The influence on researchers as Sewall Wright, John Haldane and Ronald Fisher among others, were very important for the selection on husbandry animals. Therefore, the aim of this text is to demonstrate the importance of the relationship between Biology and Mathematics in the construction of new pathways that afford a theoretical framework and the resulting practical applications of these subjects on education.
