MTH 2170 Mathematical Modeling for the Environmental Sciences

3 Hours

Prerequisites/Corequisites: MTH 1210  or 1180.

This course introduces the concept of modeling as a means of both understanding systems and of the making predictions about their future behaviors. It will present concepts in environmental science from a problem solving perspective and will develop the student’s ability to transform realistic, qualitatively described problems into quantifiably solvable form and then to arrive at approximate solutions. Computer software will be used, but primary emphasis will be placed on achieving a mental understanding of the relationship described within the models. This course will not count toward either a major or a minor in mathematics.
