'Calculating Science: Principles and Practice for the Biomedical and Life Scientists' is an accessible, student-friendly introduction to calculating, applying formulae and solving quantitative problems within these subjects. This book targets a problem area for many students and aims to give them the confidence that they are so often lacking when undertaking scientific calculations. The book is largely shaped by one well-established, but severely neglected principle that should not only help struggling students, but which can also highlight weaknesses in contemporary theory and practice.
Little basic knowledge of mathematics is assumed, but even the most numerate readers will be interested in the biological detail. Numerous worked examples, supplementary questions and practice problems are provided throughout. Providing a unique approach to the subject and using unit analysis as a central theme, this text will be an invaluable resource to enhance student understanding.
... excellent book... certainly interesting and engaging but it avoids being complicated. -Journal of Biological Education, Spring 2009
