Survey: perspectives on biology and mathematics

Twenty eight statements about biology and mathematics are listed below. The statements cover three areas: The background for this survey can be found at my page on the psychology of learning mathematics.

Please rank these statements from strong agreement (4) to strong disagreement (-4). I would suggest that you try to fit your rankings into the following distribution.

This distribution is arbitrary, you do not have to follow it. However, it allows you to make clear distinctions between your views of different statements.

If you wish to rank your statements according to the distribution, I have found two ways to make the process easier. See my note at the bottom of the page.

Note

If you wish to rank your statements according to the distribution, I have found two ways to make the process easier.

First method.

Second method.
You do not have to match the distribution exactly. If you agree with more statements than you disagree, you can alter the distrubtion. Your opinions are more important than trying to fit a generalised distribution
