DIVISION: | PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING | ||
DEPARTMENT: | MATHEMATICS | ||
GENERAL EDUCATION: | This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement. | ||
CATALOG DESCRIPTION: | Construction, solution, interpretation and validation of discrete models with typical applications. (Winter odd years) | ||
DESCRIPTION: | |||
TOPICS: | Construction, solution, validation and interpretation of discrete and continuous modes, applied to problems in the sciences. | ||
OBJECTIVES: | This class will help the students bring together a variety of problem solving tools. The student will learn to choose or formulate appropriate mathematical models for solving real-world problems of current interest making appropriate assumptions. They will solve the models and interpret the solution in real-world terms. | ||
REQUIREMENTS: | All students must have their own textual materials. If a graphing calculator is required, the student must supply it. Exams are required by all faculty members as is some use of commercial mathematical software. Each faculty member decides what other forms of assessment to require and what weight to give each of them. |
