math for biologists should be my level

hello folks,

the last exams i passed, have been about
analysis and linear algebra for biologists
in a german university.

of coarse i have not kept everything,
but it might be a rough guide about
how one could approach me best.

almost sadly, there have not been any more math modules in the subject.
right now i mainly do hobbyist stuff like 3d-printing with what i have learned.

lowercase is ok here ?

hmm, the site says bad referer header, if i send none.
do i have to have them activated ?

Re: math for biologists should be my level

Hi mathdrop,

Welcome to the forum!

Neat introduction!

I don't think lower case is appropriate, and I wouldn't approve.

But take your time for transformation as early as you can.

Other aspects, I shall check in some time, a few days.

Good Wishes!

hi mathdrop,

I don't understand.  What 'none' weren't you sending?  And what do you want to activate?  I'm totally confused.

As for 'math for biologists',  analysis and linear algebra seem strange maths topics to study for a biologist.  I'd have thought statistics would be more useful.

Re: math for biologists should be my level

@garnesh: Thank you for your patience.

@Bob: Beside the two mathematics modules,
we had one statistics module, one physics module
and many chemistry and of coarse biology modules, too.

The statistics module, held in the physics lecture hall,
was a mandatory primer for the physics internship.
So it felt more attached to physics.

I also participated in a math intro, aimed at physics students,
took a c++ lecture as a special module
and watched some regular chemistry lectures.

But after completing math I discontinued.
It is not that I do not like the subject of biology,
but i had private reasons.

Yes, many of my fellow students
did not particularly like math and physics.

Regarding referers:

The browser usually tells the server from which page it comes,
when it goes to a new page.

Especially between domains,
this can be a privacy issue, so I deactivated this.

Your forum however wants it for posting.
Since i have not had issues elsewhere, this was unusual to me.

I mentioned it in case it could be fixed somehow.
For now I temporary activate referers while posting.

Re: math for biologists should be my level

@garnesh: From time to time I was a bit shaky
about the notation for bringing my math thoughts on paper.

How did I do regarding linear algebra, there ?

Maybe you can help me there, too,
or if there is a more precise English word
for what I try to express in the text.

Hi,

Let's wait and see whether someone helps in the solutions.
