MA 342 - Numerical Methods (WI)

3.00 Cr
This course is an introduction to numerical methods and MATLAB programming. We focus not just on how numerical methods work, but when they are appropriate, where they fail, and how to interpret their results. Specific topics vary by instructor but will be chosen from roundoff and truncation errors, root-finding methods, numerical methods for linear algebra, least squares regression methods, interpolation, numerical integration and differentiation, and numerical algorithms for solving ordinary and partial differential equations. Students will learn to write functions in MATLAB using looping and control statements. This is a writing intensive course and students will complete several coding and writing intensive projects throughout the semester.
