Summary: For a two-semester course in Calculus for Life Sciences.

This text addresses the needs of students in the biological sciences by teaching calculus in a biological context without reducing the course level. It is a calculus text, written so that a math professor without a biology background can teach from it successfully. New concepts are introduced in a three step manner. First, a biological example motivates the topic; second, the topic is then developed ...show morevia a simple mathematical example; and third the concept is tied to deeper biological examples. This allows students: to see why a concept is important; to understand how to use the concept computationally; to make sure that they can apply the concept.

Features

  • NEW--Stronger biology focus in Calculus I.
    • Enables students to learn the material in the context of their major.
  • NEW--Discrete time models, sequences and difference equations chapter added. (New Chapter 2).
    • Introduces students to exponential growth decay, sequences and population models.
  • Allows for earlier introduction of biological examples.
  • NEW--Statistics and probability chapter substantially enlarged.
    • Enables students to become better trained quantitively.
  • NEW--50-70% increase in problems in first 6 chapters (Calculus I).
    • Provides students with up-to-date problems that apply to their field.
  • NEW--Section on translating word problems into graphs.
    • Provides students with graphing and basic transformations of function information, as well as guidelines for translating word problems into graphs.
  • Calculus taught in the context of biology--Not watered down, as in many of the brief calculus versions.
    • Enables instructors without a biology background to use the text successfully. Enables students to acquire a firm foundation in calculus to apply calculus concepts to problems in the biological sciences.
  • Less emphasis on integration techniques and more coverage of differential equations and systems of differential equations.
    • Provides students with a discussion that includes both solution methods, and, to a larger extent, a qualitative discussion.
  • Examples worked out in step-by-step detail--Each subsection contains examples which increase in difficulty. The examples are completely worked out with a lot of detail on how one step follows from the previous--unlike in other calculus texts which often simply provide lengthy calculations without explanations.
  • A variety of problems after each section--The problems start out as drill problems. These are followed by increasingly harder, more conceptual problems. Finally, word problems tie the concepts into biology.
