MATH 231 – Mathematical Modeling I

Cr: 2 Wkly hrs: 1.5 hours Lecture, 1 hours Lab
NS - An introduction to mathematical modeling in the context of addressing questions from science and engineering. Focus is on describing concrete, realistic processes using ordinary differential equations and systems of equations. A lab component is included. Specific topics may include: electrical circuits, spring-mass systems, heating and cooling models, population dynamics, and environmental problems.

Prerequisite: MATH 221 or concurrent enrollment.
