Part IA Mathematical Biology
Mathematical Biology is a first year course in the Natural Sciences Tripos. The course is taught by biologists from the Departments of Plant Science and Zoology who use mathematics in their research. It is one of two courses in mathematics specially designed for first year biologists.
Mathematical Biology is for students who have studied mathematics to A level or equivalent and introduces them to the application of mathematical, statistical and computing methods in the analysis of biological problems.
Elementary Mathematics for Biologists is for students who have not done A level mathematics or equivalent.
All biology students must either do one or other of these courses or the mathematics course designed for physical scientists.
