# QBCC Modules sorted by Quantitative Biology Skills Concepts

These quantitative skill concepts arose from research conducted by Dr. Sondre LoRe that identified core quantitative biology skills that community college students need based on surveying community college faculty.

### List of Quantitative Categories
