About this book

An award-winning professor's introduction to essential concepts of calculus and mathematical modelling 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, Mathematical Models in the Biosciences I makes concepts of calculus more relatable for science majors and premedical students.

Media reviews

"This is a wonderful book, wise and witty. It would have taught me most of the math I needed for my career in research – if I did all the problems."
– Stephen Stearns, author of The Evolution of Life Histories and Evolutionary Medicine

"This enlightening book covers not only the essential parts of calculus and dynamical system, but also how one can apply these tools in biological sciences. In addition, the last chapter of this book is a concise introduction to probability theory. Michael Frame motivates students with very well-selected examples."
– Hongyu He, Professor of Mathematics, Louisiana State University

"This work is an important step toward a new curriculum model for the nascent field of mathematical biology: different content and authentic applications, geared toward a truly interdisciplinary audience."
– Rebecca Gasper, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Creighton University
