MATH 291 - Mathematical Software. An introduction to computer assisted math modeling and problem solving

3 Credit(s) | Lecture | Graded or pass/fail
Course can be counted for credit once

The purpose of this course is to develop a basic skillset in using computer software to approach, analyze, and report on mathematical problems. Students will learn to work collaboratively to investigate both basic problems and advanced mathematical topics via simulation and numerical exploration, and they will prepare professional level reports which compile and communicate their results. The topics and their applications will be illustrated using computer algebra software (e.g. Sage), a modern programming language (e.g. Python), and document creation software (e.g. Latex).
