|CLASS CODE:||MATH 411||CREDITS: 3|
|DIVISION:||PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING|
|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)|
|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.|
|EFFECTIVE DATE:||August 2001|
