This course is a project-oriented seminar in mathematical modeling. Concepts from calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and other areas of mathematics will be used to derive, describe and solve mathematical models from the life, physical, and social sciences. Familiarity with a programming language is desirable but not required. The goal of this course is to provide students with multiple examples of how mathematics can be used to explain various phenomena, to describe real-world situations and to make (more quantitatively) informed decisions.
