- Fall 2019
Department of Mathematical
Rutgers University, Camden, NJ
- Class meetings:
- Wednesdays 6:00PM - 8:50PM
- Strong background in undergraduate
- Knowledge of C++.
- This course is suitable for graduate
students and advanced
- This course will introduce concepts of
mathematical modeling through a hand-ons problem solving
approach. The students will be divided into groups for two
projects. The first project will be a competition where each
group is solving the same problem. The groups will develop a
design and submit a paper describing the design along with C++ code of
their design. The second project will be a class project where
the entire class will solve a problem working in groups but in this
project, each group is working on a different part of the bigger
problem. The groups must coordinate their efforts and integrate
the solutions to solve the main problem.
- NOTE: This will depend on course
