Math & Science Center - W201
The course has two components, each covering roughly half the term. (1) Differential equations applied to biological systems. Topics include brief introductions to the matrix and multivariable calculus topics needed to study systems of differential equations that model such phenomena as competition, predator/prey interaction, and epidemics. (2) Introduction to probability and inferential statistics, including hypothesis testing.
Students intending to take 200-level math courses should meet with the instructor for advice -- Math 112 is often better preparation for these courses than Math 116.
There will be assignments, quizzes, two midterm tests, and an exam after each of parts (1) and (2). The exam on part (2) of the course will be in the regularly scheduled final examination time.
