Fall 2005

Everything on this course page will also be listed in the new "CLEO"
environment. CLEO may also include things such as an online gradebook-
I'll announce this in class. The CLEO link is:

This course explores the process of building, analyzing and interpreting mathematical descriptions of real-world processes. The course introduces basic techniques, which may include such topics as data fitting, modeling with functions, discrete dynamics, differential equations, and simulation modeling.
