The goal of this course is to familiarize the student with the main mathematical methods and tools as used in biology, commonly known as 'Calculus'.
At the end of the course the student can
- understand texts that include basic mathematical equations such as comonly used in the scientific biological literature
- apply mathematical concepts and methods to common problems in biology
- solve basic mathematical problems
- report on how the solution of the aforementioned basic mathematical problems were derived, i.e. correctly formulate mathematical solutions
|At the start of the course, you are expected to be at the level of 'VWO Mathematics B' of the Dutch secondary school system. You will do a pre-test before the start of the course to see if this is the case, and if not extra study material will be provided.|
