ALES 291A - Mathematics for the Life Sciences

This course provides a survey of calculus and finite mathematics focussing on the concepts and modelling techniques used in the life sciences. It covers common families of functions (polynomial, logarithmic and exponential) and their derivatives and integrals, linear programming, simple and conditional probability and Bayes theorem, and network analysis. Topics are illustrated using problems drawn from the life sciences.

Prerequisite: Pre-calculus 12 or Foundations of Mathematics 12 or MATH 060

Registration restricted to students in the B.Sc. in Environmental and Conservation Sciences program. This course is also available as MATH 120 - non-B.Sc. ENCS students interested in taking ALES 291A should instead register in MATH 120.
