Introductory Mathematics for the Life Sciences offers a straightforward introduction to the mathematical principles and applications needed for studies in the life sciences. Starting with the basics of numbers, fractions, ratios, and percentages, the author explains progressively more sophisticated concepts. He moves from algebra, measurement, and scientific notation to examine the use of exponentials and logarithmic functions, and even includes introductory statistics. Worked examples illustrate concepts, applications, and interpretations. Exercises at the end of each chapter, with answers posted at the end of the text, help readers apply and practice the skills they develop.
