Brief course description:


Biology presents complex problems requiring quantitative approaches to tackle them.  This term, Math 76 introduces you to mathematical modeling in biology, with an emphasis in modeling disease dynamics using differential equations.  You will learn to construct, analyze, and simulate models and interpret your results within their biological context.  By the end of the term, you will have experience posing biological problems and using mathematics to elucidate them.
