ISBN 978-0-89641-009-1

A text designed
to meet the basic mathematical needs of the student in the health
careers discipline. Emphasis is placed on the concepts that are
necessary for the successful completion of biology, chemistry,
the elementary physics programs. Material is presented in such
a way as to provide as much flexibility as possible for choosing
an appropriate teaching method. Topics discussed are followed
by detailed examples and class exercises. A problem section which
concludes each section or chapter may be used as homework or as
self-tests for the better students.
