Course Information for Math 124
This course develops basic concepts of calculus with life science applications. Topics include differential and integral calculus and an introduction to elementary differential equations all connected to biological problems. Computer skills are developed and applied to more complex biological models. This class is not open to students with credit in Math 121 and 122 or Math 150. This course is required for biology majors, and it develops the quantitative skills in those students. For GE students, it provides interdisciplinary studies connecting mathematics and biology with a strong technological component.
