Calculus for the Life Sciences: Modeling the Dynamics of Life introduces 1st-year life sciences majors to the insights and applications of mathematics in the biological sciences. Designed to help life sciences students understand the role mathematics has played in breakthroughs in epidemiology, genetics, physiology, and other biological areas, this text provides students with a thorough foundation in mathematics, the language, and 'the technology of thought' with which these developments are created and controlled.

- A streamlined layout to suit a Canadian one-semester calculus course for life sciences students
- Contains examples and scenarios relevant to Canadian life sciences students
- In addition to routine skills problems, this text includes a wide variety of modeling problems in each section to emphasize consistently the importance of interpretation.
- Contains over 50 exercises designed to be explored on a graphing calculator (preferably programmable) or on a computer, using software such as Maple
- Includes projects in each chapter that are suitable for individual or group exploration
- Enhanced WebAssign homework management system
