Linear Algebra and Numerical Methods for Engineers

(1,3) 2

This course covers the engineering application of concepts from applied mathematics, iterative programming and numerical methods. Applications of linear algebra and complex numbers are introduced. Iterative programming emphasizes loops, conditional statements and user input-output. Numerical methods topics include root searching methods, numerical integration, and other algorithms involving iterative computations. The lab also includes instruction on commercially-available software used to implement the numerical methods studies. Prerequisite: MATH140 (or high school mathematics that includes two years of algebra, one year of plane geometry, and one-half year of trigonometry and equivalent/satisfactory score on ACT or Placement Exam). Pre- or corequisite: MATH112 or 151.
