Math Models Bio & Epidemiology

Mathematical Modeling in Biology and Epidemiology
Population growth, species interactions, and the transmission and treatment of infectious diseases have long been central foci in biology. Mathematical modeling has tremendously influenced the ongoing research in these areas and has greatly contributed to our understanding. In this course we will investigate a variety of discrete and continuous mathematical models used in these areas. We will explore original research and will learn how to critique existing models. We will formulate and investigate our own questions by building, analyzing, and testing new models. (Calculus) 3 hrs. sem.
