MATH 196 - Calculus and Mathematical Concepts for Life Science


Students are presented with mathematical concepts and techniques in contexts that are immediately relevant to biology or chemistry. Mathematical topics include differential and integral calculus, basic mathematical and statistical modeling, basic matrix theory, and mathematics used to describe diffusion. Students learn through hands-on activities and projects, and they use a computational environment such as Matlab to explore course concepts. The course does not substitute for MATH 198 - Analytic Geometry and Calculus I .

Prerequisites: Completion of the Elementary Functions Essential Skills requirement, placement based on sufficiently strong high school background and score on the Mathematics Placement Exam, or sufficient score on the Elementary Functions Essential Skills Place-Out Test.
Credits: 4
NOTE:
* This course fulfills the Mathematical Mode of Inquiry of the Liberal Studies Program.
** This course counts toward the 63-credit Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) graduation requirement.
