An introduction to the numerical approximation of solutions of various types of problems. Topics include rootfinding, interpolation and numerical differentiation, and integration. Additional topics may be drawn from numerical solutions of ordinary differential equations and linear systems.
Prerequisite(s): Grade of "C" or better in MATH 106 Calculus II.
A continuation of Mathematics 105. Topics studied include integration techniques and applications, differential equations, numerical approximations, sequences and series, and vectors. Assignments are given that help build proficiency in the use of a computer algebra system.
Prerequisite(s): Permission of department or grade of "C" or better in MATH 105 Calculus I.
