Q SCI 291: Analysis for Biologists I --- Autumn 2014

Description of Reading and Homework Assignments

Each assignment shown below contains a list of the chapters and sections within a chapter that should be read prior to working the assigned homework problems. Note: All homework assignments are self graded and are NOT turned in NOR graded. They are solely for your benefit to test your understanding and should be worked by the dates shown. There are a large number of homework problems listed, so we suggest that you work a number of these each day of the quarter. We also highly recommend that you work all assigned problems prior to each examination. Answers to the odd numbered homework problems are available in the back of the text or in the Student's Solution Manual. Also available are answers to the Chapter Review exercises.

In addition to many Practice Exercises, we have also selected many Application from each chapter. These demonstrate the usefulness of differential calculus tools and concepts to biology, health, business, economics, environmental science and resource management. Working through these word problems will help students gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the usefulness of the mathematical techniques being covered.
