A mathematical way to think about biology

Why “is” biology log-normal? Why do some circuits oscillate? See biology from a physical sciences perspective. – Free Course

What you’ll learn

  • Apply physical sciences perspectives to biological research
  • Be able to teach yourself quantitative biology
  • Be able to communicate with mathematical and physical scientists


  • Algebra
  • Exposure to calculus (there is an appendix for students interested in review)


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." -Tweeted by the U.S. National Cancer Institute's Office of Physical Sciences Oncology
