MATH 3401 Mathematical Modelling
The course outlines the different stages of the mathematical modeling process. It is designed to guide the student through carefully chosen examples designed to illustrate the process of constructing and analyzing a mathematical model. Discrete and continuous system models are analysed throughout using mathematical and computer based methods. Knowledge of Multivariable Calculus, elementary Linear Algebra and Ordinary Differential Equations is essential for this course. As Matlab will be utilized extensively in the compulsory computer lab sessions, an introductory course in Matlab is also listed as a mandatory prerequisite.
All lectures, assignments, handouts, and review materials are available online through myeLearning to all students. Blended leaning techniques will be employed. Lectures will be supplemented with laboratory work and group discussions.
