From Startups to World Hunger: A Mathematical Perspective

Use mathematical modeling to analyze social and economic problems such as energy conservation, world hunger, and entrepreneurial ventures. Learn how mathematical tools can be used to model and solve problems, including statistical methods and numerical approximations. Collaborate with peers to research and find solutions for open-ended, real world scenarios. Create graphical, numerical, symbolic, and verbal representations of real world phenomena. Employ mathematical and statistical software, such as MATLAB®, to work with large sets of data. Learn from professionals in the fields of medicine, technology, and energy conservation regarding the use of mathematical models in their work. Visit local corporations and nonprofit organizations to observe how mathematical modeling is used in practice. *Course Prerequisites: Algebra II and Geometry
