Finite Mathematical Modeling & Decision Analysis (Math 47)
This course is an effort to meet students’ need for an applied mathematics course that will prepare them for a successful transition to a four year university program requiring calculus-based quantitative skills (e.g. math, science, engineering, economics, management). In addition to expanding math skills in modeling-related areas, this project-based course allows students to obtain…
- an integrated understanding of their math skills;
- an understanding of when and how math models will be useful to decision makers;
- practice in articulating (oral and written) a quantitative understanding of real-world problems; and
- enhanced ability to organize analytic work in a team setting.
In conjunction with the course, the College, Math Department, and ASIVC sponsor the “IVC Competitive Math Modeling Team”, which attends and competes in math modeling competitions.
