Q SCI 292
Introduction to integral calculus, emphasizing development of basic skills. Examples promote understanding of mathematics and applications to modeling and solving biological problems. Topics include areas under curves, volumes, and differential equations. Prerequisite: minimum grade of.7 in either Q SCI 291 or MATH 124. Not available for credit to students who have completed MATH 125 with a 2.0 or higher Offered: WSpS.
This course is expected to cover techniques in integral calculus. Biological/ecological models such as exponential growth/decay, logistic, von-Bertallanfy, Ricker's, Monod/Michelis-Menten will be analyzed in depth. Other applications include, finding volumes, surface of revolution, length of a curve and interpretations of area under curves.
Student learning goals
Learn techniques of integration.
When and how to apply integral calculus to real-world problems.
General method of instruction
Lectures, mostly involves problem solving from the exercise section of the book. The students are expected to read the relevant sections and worked out examples from the text.
Pre-cal (algebra, trig), Differential Calculus
