Easy mathematics for biologists

Author: Peter C Foster
Publisher: Australia : Harwood Academic Publishers, ©1998.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"Easy mathematics for biologists covers the basic mathematical ideas of fractions, decimals and percentages, through ratio and proportion, exponents and logarithms to straight line graphs, graphs that are not straight lines, and their transformation. Direct application of each of these leads to a clear understanding of biological calculations such as those involving concentrations and dilutions, changing units, pH,  Read more...

Abstract:

Elementary mathematics is vital to the design and interpretation of biological experiments. Equally, you do not want to spend your time struggling with complex mathematics that you will never use.  Read more...

Direct application of each of these leads to a clear understanding of biological calculations such as those involving concentrations and dilutions, changing units, pH, and linear and non-linear rates of reaction. Each chapter contains worked examples, and is followed by numerous problems, both pure and applied, that you can work through in your own time. Answers can be found in the back of the book."--Page 4 of cover." ;
