MATH-007 Introduction to Mathematical Modeling
Fall for 2017-2018
Spring for 2017-2018
This course if for students who want to see how the math they have previously learned can be applied to personal issues related to health and finance as well as in policy decisions from many different fields. In the first part of the course, personal issues, such as weight gain or loss, alcohol abuse, proper drug dosage, mortgages and annuities are primarily considered. In the second part of the course, we will consider more global models that give insight into sustainable management of the worlds resources or issues related to genetics and genetic engineering. Often the results will be counterintuitive, such as finding that an increase in the rate of wild-life harvesting may actually decrease the long-term harvest. Fall and Spring.
