For a two-semester course in Calculus for Life Sciences. The first calculus text that adequately addresses the special needs of students in the biological sciences, this volume teaches calculus in the biology context without compromising the level of regular calculus. It is a essentially a calculus text, written so that a math professor without a biology background can teach from it successfully. The material is organized in the standard way and explains how the different concepts are logically related. Each new concept is typically introduced with a biological example; the concept is then developed without the biological context and then the concept is tied into additional biological examples. This allows students to first see why a certain concept is important, then lets them focus on how to use the concepts without getting distracted by applications, and then, once students feel more comfortable with the concepts, it revisits the biological applications to make sure that they can apply the concepts. The text features exceptionally detailed, step-by-step, worked-out examples and a variety of problems, including an unusually large number of word problems in a biological context.
