MATH 220 BioCalculus Section for Spring 2016

The IB and MCB Departments have been working with the Math Department for a few years to generate a course that will be targeted specifically to biology students needing credit for Calculus I. The course instructors, James O’Dwyer (Plant Biology) and Zoi Rapti (Math), have much experience in using calculus to tackle biological questions. They have designed a course that:

  1. Uses biological examples from both biomedical and population perspectives.
  2. Exposes students to model building based on calculus.
  3. Prepares them to go on to Calculus II if they wish.
  4. Has assignments that will be built around students learning how to apply a limited amount of R programming.

One unique section (XL1, 12:00-12:50 MWF) and the accompanying discussion/recitation sections (XD_) are devoted to the BioCalculus section of MATH 220.
