Description

For undergraduate courses in math modeling, and biology calculus courses in departments of math and life sciences.Designed for students who understand the simple basics of calculus, this text focuses on the differential equations and related subjects that are commonly used today by working life scientists. It emphasizes both the mathematics and how the mathematics is employed in order to introduce some potentially useful tools and modes of thought to future experimental biologists.show more
