Continued study of calculus and other mathematical methods for modeling change and uncertainty. Topics include multivariable calculus; systems of linear equations, difference equations and differential equations; and probability models such as Bayes' rule and random walks. Students will be guided in the discovery and mastery of mathematical techniques in the context of problems in the life sciences.
