Course Description:

Explore numerical methods and develop a variety of skills involving mathematical preliminaries and error analysis, direct methods for solving linear systems, interpolation and polynomial approximation, numerical integration and differentiation, and solutions of equations of one variable. This course is highly computational and many of the concepts require a deeper understanding of the theory presented. Therefore, all concepts covered within the text are fully explored with MAPLE, a powerful computer algebra system that provides not only a variety of palettes for ease in mathematical writing but also tremendous computational functionality.

Prerequisites: Calculus 1 and 2 or equivalent. Familiarity with linear algebra and programming recommended.
