Math 396: Mathematical Modeling |

This is not a regular class! The format of the class is a weekly hands-on seminar where students will work together in groups on using mathematics to solve mathematics problems that are derived from real-world pehnomena.

The Spring 2021 edition of Mathematical
Modeling
will be a survey of how mathematical models are used in various disciplines.

Pre-requisites are Math 212 (*Multivariable Calculus*) and Math
214 (*Linear Algebra*) or Permission of Instructor.

The class will meet on Tuesdays from 10:15am-11:40am remotely.

**The objectives of the Mathematical Modeling course are:**

- exposing students to mathematical models from various scientific disciplines (economics, biology, physics, data science, etc)
- allowing students to analyze, develop, test and/or implement mathematical models (that they choose or devise);
- presenting students with a different mode of classroom instruction and student involvement where students see themselves as equal participants in the education process;
- providing students with opportunities to practice and hone oral and written presentation skills of mathematical/technical content; and
- developing students' collaboration skills by working in small teams towards a common goal;
