This course introduces the student to the mathematical modelling with applications to biology in related fields such as chemistry, ecology and health. There is an emphasis on case studies and problem solving skills. Topics include discrete and continuous models describing population dynamics, population health, chemical reactions and biological structures.

March 4 - Class continues. Class is not suspended. Notes will be posted.

Class on Feb 28 This class will be in CB120 (the computer network is down so we cannot use the computers). Bring your computer (if you can) so that we can use matlab and maple to look at a disease model.
