Some Applications of Mathematics for the Biology Classroom
Horton, Robert M.; Leonard, William H.
American Biology Teacher, v75 n4 p281-284 Apr 2013
Biology and mathematics are inextricably linked. In this article, we show a few of the many areas in which this linkage might be made explicit. By doing so, teachers can deepen students' understanding and appreciation of both subjects. In this article, we explore some of these areas, providing brief explanations of the mathematics and some of the applications in biology, with ideas for some of the investigations that teachers might wish to pose to their students.
