Math 400: Applied Mathematics |

This is not a regular class! The format of the class will be a year long seminar (2-credits each semester) in applications of mathematics that meets once a week for 90 minutes. The students will play an integral part in the presentation and understanding of the material. You may take either semester or both (or neither!)

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

The Fall
2020 edition is **Math ****400 Senior Colloquium: Applied
Mathematics**. This class partially fulfills the major
requirement to take two semesters of senoir colloquium courses prior to
graduation. It will cover mathematical methods commonly found in
classical Applied Mathematics such as dimensional analysis and
perturbation methods. We will primarily be using material from

The Spring 2021 edition is **Math 396** *
Mathematical
Modeling*, which
is an introduction to the art of applying mathematics to real world
problems. The text will be

**The goals of the Mathematical Modeling course are to:**

- provide students with an opportunity to apply mathematics to (an) actual real world problem(s);
- present a different mode of classroom instruction and student involvement where students see themselves as equal participants in the education process;
- expose students to a wide variety of mathematical models from multiple disciplinary perspectives; and
- encourage students to find projects that they could investigate further during Summer Undergraduate Research.

**The goals of the Applied Mathematics course are to:**

- expose students to important techniques widely used in applied mathematics;
- present a different mode of classroom instruction and student involvement where students see themselves as equal participants in the education process;
- provide students with an opportunities to practice and hone oral presentation skills; and
- become more familiar with using modern computational tools to solve mathematical problems;
