Calculus With Applications for the Life Sciences was written for the one- or two-semester applied calculus course for life science students with a focus on incorporating interesting, relevant, and realistic applications. This text includes many citations from current data sources. It also offers many opportunities for use of technology, allowing for increased visualization and a better understanding of difficult concepts.
