Mathematics for Biological Scientists is a biologytextbook covering the quantitative content of a first degree in the biological sciences and explains the parts of mathematics that are necessary to understand biological measurements and theories. As mathematics is fundamental to science, most students will encounter itfrom the beginning of their biological studiesbut will have a widely differing levels of mathematical knowledge. Chapter 0 explains what students need to know before using this book and gives appropriate resources for those who need prior guidance. After that, the book starts with short chapters on quantities, algebra and trigonometry, then tackles calculus, moving on to statictics and probability, and finally biological modelling. Throughout the book, mathematical concepts arepresented asworked examples that show how theconcept applies to a particular biological problem. Key terms and concepts are highlighted within the text, and there are highlight boxes in the margins which draw attention to related material. Each chapterends witha series of questions,divided into basic, intermediate, and advanced with the answers given in the back of the book. There are also questions with fully worked-out answers given to help studentson how to present their work. Mathematics for Biological Scientists will therefore be an essential guide to students throughout their first degree course in the biological sciences.Hladky, Stephen B. is the author of 'Mathematics for Biological Scientists ', published 2009 under ISBN 9780815341369 and ISBN 0815341369.
