Resources for Mathematics Education for Biology Students

The resources collected here, with assistance from the Education Committee of the Society for Mathematical Biology , are an extension of the Quantitative Curriculum for Life Science Students project, which is being expanded with support from the National Science Foundation under Grant DUE-9752339 to develop quantitative resources within General Biology courses. Additional resources are available through The Mathematics Archives for The Life Sciences.
