Description

A mathematical way to think about biology comes to life in this lavishly illustrated video book.  After completing these videos, students will be better prepared to collaborate in physical sciences-biology research.  These lessons demonstrate a physical sciences perspective: training intuition by deriving equations from graphical illustrations.  

"Excellent site for both basic and advanced lessons on applying mathematics to biology."

This is not a quick fix: It can take a couple months to work through this material at a comprehensible pace.  We briefly review algebra and calculus, describe basic probabilistic modeling, explain how to solve dynamical systems, and then present an area of application in physical oncology.  Even after viewing these sections, students will still need to invest significant effort in order to participate in multidisciplinary research.  These videos provide starting points for conversation between biological and physical disciplines.  Students may wish to return to these tutorials periodically for review as research proceeds.
