CLASS CODE: MATH 411 CREDITS:  3
DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: MATHEMATICS
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Basic error analysis, complexity of algorithms, roots, interpolation, least squares approximation, curve fitting, numerical differentiation and integration and systems of linear equations. (Winter even years)
DESCRIPTION:
TOPICS: Basic error analysis, complexity of algorithms, roots, interpolation, least squares, approximation, curve fitting, numerical differentiation and integration and systems of linear equations.
OBJECTIVES: Students will discover and utilize the interplay between the discrete and the continuous to solve a wide variety of problems. They will also be able to find error bounds and determine the complexity of numerical algorithms.
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 a limited amount of computer programming. Each faculty member decides what other forms of assessment to require and what weight to give them.
PREREQUISITES: CS 144 and either Math 341 or Math 316. Math 301 preferred.
