What topics in maths would I need to study to help with Biology?Watch
The only one I know do far is differential equations.

Also I'd suggest learning about logarithms and exponentials if you're not familiar with the principles.
logs are a definite- particularly if you're working with microbes, trig, straight line graphs, rearranging equations, basic calculus, equations from co-ordinates, algebra and fractions, exponentials and polynomial graphs. Then basic chemistry calculations like molarity and dilutions
In terms of stats- you'll be taught how to use programmes such as SPSS and how to interpret regression and correlation analysis, T- tests, ANOVA and non parametric tests
Hope that's been of some help
a) 3D objects theory e.g. Poiusseille's (spelling) equation to work out flow rates in blood vessels (blood), intestine (chyle), etc
b) your units in nanograms, picograms, femtograms to understand blood levels of chemicals e.g. normal K+ level in mmoles/l.
OR: thickness of unit membrane = 7nm.
C) If you decide to do a pharmacology or physiology module: simple first order equations for pharmacokinetics.
Mostly you only need very simple maths.
