The Hardy-Weinberg Principle, and Mathematics within Biology

When we consider low-level biology courses, we may tend to think of more memorization-based concepts, such as the names of dozens of different organelles within a plant cell, as well as their various functions. In many cases, biology courses remain completely descriptive, removing any form of mathematics to avoid confusing the students any further than they already are. There are a few cases in biology, however, where instructors are required to introduce some mathematics to the curriculum; a welcome break from all the memorization required!
