EDITORIAL REVIEWS

Book Description

This volume teaches calculus in the biology context without compromising the level of regular calculus. The material is organized in the standard way and explains how the different concepts are logically related. 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 distracted by applications, and then, once readers 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-out examples and a variety of problems, including an unusually large number of word problems. The volume begins with a preview and review and moves into discrete time models, sequences, and difference equations, limits and continuity, differentiation, applications of differentiation, integration techniques and computational methods, differential equations, linear algebra and analytic geometry, multivariable calculus, systems of differential equations and probability and statistics. For faculty and postdocs in biology departments.
