MA 489 - Techniques of Mathematical Modeling

(3.00 cr.)

Covers basic mathematical tools for quantitative descriptions of practical problems arising from physics, biology, economics, and engineering. Mathematical models are an important way of obtaining quantitative solutions to these problems. Emphasis is on the formulation, analysis, and testing of mathematical models through some elementary examples and effective communication of quantitative results. Topics include modeling change by difference equations, curve fitting, modeling with differential equations, modeling by graph theory, and linear programming.

Prerequisite: MA 302 , MA 351 .
Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring/Summer
Years Typically Offered: Annually
