SC/MATH1505.06
Mathematics for Life and Social Sciences
Formerly known as ACMS1050.06
A presentation of the elements of single variable calculus,
linear algebra, and probability and statistics. Topics include
derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions with
applications to maxima and minima and rates of growth,
techniques of integration, applications of the integral, simple
ordinary differential equations, vectors, matrices, systems of
linear equations, sample spaces, discrete and continuous
probability distributions. This course is designed to provide a
comprehensive mathematical background for students of the
biological sciences. Emphasis is placed on basic mathematical
skills and their applications to the life sciences. Three lecture
hours, one tutorial hour.
The text will be announced later.
