An award-winning professor's introduction to essential concepts of calculus and mathematical modeling for students in the biosciences.

This is the first of a two-part series exploring essential concepts of calculus in the context of biological systems. Michael Frame covers essential ideas and theories of basic calculus and probability while providing examples of how they apply to subjects like chemotherapy and tumor growth, chemical diffusion, allometric scaling, predator-prey relations, and nerve impulses. Based on the author's calculus class at Yale University, the book makes concepts of calculus more relatable for science majors and premedical students.
