Abstract: Mathematics plays a key role in many disciplines of science, primarily as a mathematical modeling tool. New innovations and developments in physics are by the influence of mathematics. Calculus was invented entirely for the use of physics. The importance of the role of mathematics in physics is understood by the existing discipline “mathematical physics” or "theoretical physics". One can think is mathematics has that same important role or even lesser important role in the field of biology and is mathematics and biology could possibly have anything in common. Even though physics and biology are very different sciences, mathematicians and biologists developed the "mathematical biology" or "biomathematics" as a recent discipline for the mathematical representation in biology to the theoretical and practical applications in biological, biomedical and biotechnology researches. In this paper we study the role played by mathematics in biology and analysis weather a considerable amount of mathematics courses need to be teach for biological science graduates.
