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. | ||
