Cursusdoelen
Upon completion of this course the student is able to:
  • carry out a programming assignment in Matlab;
  • develop and interpret a mathematical model;
  • write a report about a mathematical model in LaTeX;
  • improve intercultural communication with students of different backgrounds and is aware of the impact of their own cultural background;
  • take responsibility for their own learning process.
Inhoud
A distinctive feature of Applied Mathematics is the design and analysis of mathematical models. With such models we can, for instance, predict weather and virus spread, develop computer games and safely transmit data over long distances, et cetera. The list is endless. Mathematical models are literally everywhere. Did you know, for instance, that your mobile phone solves some 50 linear equations every second in order to compress your speech? In the project you will learn and apply the basics of mathematical modelling. It consists of several modelling assignments. We also learn to program in Matlab. The modeling assignments are carried out in groups of about four students. Each group writes a report, and this report is to be written in LaTeX. Because the programme has an international character, there are a couple of workshops that make students aware of the impact of cultural differences and help them to deal with this. Some aspects of working in a team are discussed as well.
