Summary: This volume teaches calculus in the biology context without compromising the level of regular calculus. Each new concept is typically introduced with a biological example; the concept is then developed without the biological context; and then the concept is tied into additional biological examples. This allows readers to first see why a certain concept is important; then lets them focus on how to use the concepts without getting dis
tracted by applications; and then, once they feel more comfortable with the concepts, it revisits the biological applications to make sure that they can apply the concepts. The book features exceptionally detailed step-by-step worked examples and a variety of problems, including an unusually large number of word problems in a biological context. Limits and Continuity. Derivatives. Integration. Integration Techniques. Differential Equations. Applications. Linear Algebra and Analytic Geometry. Multivariable Calculus. Systems of Differential Equations. For anyone in the biological sciences who needs a working knowledge of calculus.
