DISC MODELS
CLASS CODE: MATH 482 CREDITS:  3
DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: MATHEMATICS
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

DESCRIPTION: Construction, solution, interpretation, and validation of discrete models with typical applications.
TAUGHT: Winter odd years
CONTENT AND TOPICS: Construction, solution, validation and interpretation of discrete and continuous modes, applied to problems in the sciences.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: 1. Gain competence at creating, implementing, verifying and refining models of discrete phenomena.
2. Learn the vocabulary and important techniques of a variety of areas of discrete modeling.
3. Be exposed to some of the computational tools available for discrete modeling and gain experience using these tools.
4. Improve communication skills through presenting models and findings both orally and in written form.
5. Be able to work effectively as part of a team on significant modeling projects.
REQUIREMENTS: All students must have their own textual materials. If a graphing calculator is required, the student must supply it. Exams and homework are required by all faculty members as is some use of commercial mathematical software. Other forms of assessment may include group and individual projects, oral presentations, and peer evaluations.
