This course provides an introduction for developing, analyzing, and interpreting mathematical models of biological systems. We will cover a variety of different mathematical approaches and draw on examples from biological systems. Throughout this course, our general goal is to use mathematics as a tool for gaining a deeper understanding of biological systems and their dynamics.
The specific learning goals of this course are:
To help students achieve these learning goals, Math 2241 will use an active learning format for class instruction. The lecture material will be posted online in the form of videos and text that will be watched and read at home. In class time will be spent working through problems and projects in groups.
