Mathematical Modeling courses provide rigorous instruction in fundamental mathematical concepts and skills presented in the context of real-world applications. The modeling skills provide analytical methods for approaching problems students encounter in their future endeavors.
Students proficient in Mathematical Modeling should demonstrate the ability to
- create mathematical models of empirical or theoretical phenomena in domains such as the physical, natural, or social sciences;
- create variables and other abstractions to solve college-level mathematical problems in conjunction with previously-learned fundamental mathematical skills such as algebra;
- draw inferences from models using college-level mathematical techniques including problem solving, quantitative reasoning, and exploration using multiple representations such as equations, tables, and graphs.
