Cursusdoelen
Upon completion of this course the student:
  • is able to systematically develop and interpret a mathematical model and document the model in a report, 
  • can develop and interpret a mathematical model,
  • can write a report about a mathematical model in LaTeX,
  • knows basic programming structures and can carry out individual programming assignments in Python,
  • knows how to improve intercultural communication with students of different backgrounds and is aware of the impact of their own cultural background,
  • takes 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 course you will learn and apply the basics of mathematical modelling (roughly 50% of the course). Students learn about basic programming constructs and learn to program in Python (roughly 40% of the course).  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 deal with this. Some aspects of working in a team are discussed as well (roughly 10% of the course).
