This volume reviews differential and integral calculus for functions of one
variable, differential calculus for several variables, differential equations,
probability, difference equations, and matrices  all with special emphasis
on applications in the life sciences.
covers a broad range of examples from
the biological and medical sciences.
focuses on the use of theorems to solve
problems, rather than on the mechanics of proving
theorems.
includes sections on modelbuilding to
help readers apply mathematics to problems in the
biological sciences.
outlines a stepbystep procedures for
solving "word problems."
features many worked examples  both
purely algebraic and biological.
presents rules for differentiation in
verbal form.
provides an introductory precalculus
review chapter.
