Textbook

Our textbook will be Calculus for the Life Sciences by R. Greenwell, N. Ritchey, and M. Lial (2nd edition) pictured on the left. In addition to all the usual online places, this book is available at the UH Manoa bookstore.

Additional Resources

You may find useful the free e-book Applied Calculus by S. Calaway, D. Hoffman, and D. Lippman. Also, some of the topics that we'll be covering are nicely explained at KhanAcadeny. And of course, there's the Internet with its wealth of online resources.

General Info

Additional information about the course, including my policy on homework, exams, and grading, is provided in the Syllabus. The dates of all the exams, and a rough schedule indicating which lecture will be given on each class day can be found on the Course Work page. Students are urged to read the appropriate sections of the book before the lecture, so that they will have a general idea of what problems will be addressed and what approaches will be taken so that they can make better use of class time. Note that very often, there will be material in the book that we will not have time to present in class, so it is also important to read the appropriate section of the book after the lecture as well. Note, the schedule of lectures is just an approximation; we may find ourselves ahead of or behind schedule, depending on some unknowns. Your regular attendance in class will ensure that you will be aware of such changes.
