For a two-semester or three-semester course in Calculus for Life Sciences.

Calculus for Biology and Medicine, Third Edition, addresses the needs of students in the biological sciences by showing them how to use calculus to analyze natural phenomena–without compromising the rigorous presentation of the mathematics. While the table of contents aligns well with a traditional calculus text, all the concepts are presented through biological and medical applications. The text provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to analyze and interpret mathematical models of a diverse array of phenomena in the living world. Since this text is written for college freshmen, the examples were chosen so that no formal training in biology is needed. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
