An introduction to mathematical modeling in biology focusing on difference and differential equations, covering applications from population models to spread of diseases. A key focus of the course will be to develop and interpret mathematical models of health issues in populations, including disease spread and vaccination consideration.
Prerequisites:
Introductory Linear Algebra
MAT‑126
A study of systems of linear equations, determinants, vector algebra, n-dimensional vector spaces, linear transformations, and the eigenvalue problem. This course meets 4 hours a week.
