Introductory Life Science Mathematics and Quantitative Neuroscience Courses
Duffus, Dwight; Olifer, Andrei
CBE - Life Sciences Education, v9 n3 p370-377 Fall 2010
We describe two sets of courses designed to enhance the mathematical, statistical, and computational training of life science undergraduates at Emory College. The first course is an introductory sequence in differential and integral calculus, modeling with differential equations, probability, and inferential statistics. The second is an upper-division course in computational neuroscience. We provide a description of each course, detailed syllabi, examples of content, and a brief discussion of the main issues encountered in developing and offering the courses. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
