MATH 475 - Mathematical Modeling

An introduction to mathematical modeling using examples from physical, chemical,biological, economic, and social systems.  The use of software, critical thinking, and technical communication will be emphasized.

Prerequisites: MATH 265 and MATH 272 and MATH 376 and MATH 299S with a grade of C or higher, or with consent of the instructor.

Credits: (4)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Select mathematical models to best describe the process of mathematical modeling.
  • predict modeling results.
  • Assess mathematical models by obtaining numerical results.
  • Appraise the requirements of a problem to make modeling decisions, they will judge what to include and what to leave out of a model, and they will defend their choices based on results and constraints.  Students will evaluate which mathematical model performs best in a modeling situation
