BIOL59900 - Quantitative PhysiologySpring 2017
Days/Time: MWF / TBA
Credit Hours: 3
This course is designed to give upper-division biological sciences and biomedical engineers the ability to quantitatively understand the physical and chemical factors that are responsible for living systems. Normal relationships, both empirical and theoretical, will be covered primarily. This foundation in normal physiological systems is complemented by subsequent topics on system pathologies.
Physiology (Biol 301 and 302 or 395G or BME 295E) and Physics (PHYS 220 and 221 or 172 and 272) and Calculus (MA 223 and 224 or 290B and 290C or 161 and 162 or 165 and 166 or173.
Homework assignments will be made periodically throughout the semester and will account for 25% of the final grade. Approximately 5-6 assignments will be made. Homework may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
The homework grade will include a semester project. The end goal of the project is to develop a simple model of a physiological phenomenon and evaluate the model for a specific system.
3 exams will account for 15% each of the final grade. 1 final exam, which will account for 30% of the final grade.
