Publisher: American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges
 Description: Developed by Tina Fujita, James Hawker, and John Whitlock of Hillsborough Community College, these five curriculum guides integrate mathematical and biological concepts. These guides can be used in mathematics courses to illustrate biological applications or in biology courses to reinforce mathematics as a tool used in scientific analysis and to explain biological phenomena. Each modular unit, available on this page as PDFs, incorporates background information from both a mathematical and biological perspective and engages students with various assignments. Topics include calculating infant mortality rates, metabolic rate, surface to volume ratios, length tension curves, and preparing chemical solutions.
