Text: A course in Mathematical Modeling
by D. Mooney and R. Swift,
Published by the Mathematical Association of America
Prerequisite: Math 1634
Objective: An introduction to the creation and use of mathematical models, (L1, L2). Mathematical techniques will be developed and applied to real systems in areas including chemistry, biology, physics and economics (L3, L8). Students will be expected to make written and oral presentations in a professional manner (L13, L15).
This course will emphasize the creation and testing of models and discussions of errors and forecasting (L11). Students will work on projects singly (L4). We shall also focus on the Problem Solving aspect of modeling and use of computer Labs with Maple to enhance understanding and computational skills. (L8)
Evaluation: Students evaluation is based
Tests 24th September, 29th October and 24th November.
Final Monday Dec 8th 2003.
Attendance: 8 absences lead to WF.
