New Course Proposal
MTH 227 *CALCULUS AND PROBABILITY FOR LIFE SCIENCES I

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102206
Type: New Course
Effective Term: Winter 2018
Justification:
A wider familiarity with mathematics has become desirable for students in the life sciences. Many research universities have responded with new lower-division courses with some calculus and also other mathematics used in the life sciences. MTH 227/8 is our version of such a sequence and eight degree programs in three colleges (Agriculture, CEOAS and Science) are interested in this sequence.
