Analysis for Biologists II

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.

Class description

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.

Recommended preparation

Pre-cal (algebra, trig), Differential Calculus

Class assignments and grading

20%- 4 homeworks 40%- 4 Short quizzes 20%- Midterm 20%- Final project (based on whatever techniques you have learned during the course; depending on time there may/may not be a presentation and outside faculty/grad students will be invited)
