Description

An introduction to mathematical modelling and simulation via case studies using standard computer packages. Structured programming for mathematical problem solving.

Pre-requisites

1) MATH101, or 2) NCEA 14 Credits (18 strongly recommended) at level 3 Mathematics (including the standards 'Apply differentiation methods in solving problems (91578)' and 'Apply integration methods in solving problems (91579)'), or 3) Cambridge: D at A level or an A at AS level in Mathematics, or 4) IB: 4 at HL or 6 at SL in Mathematics, or 5) approval of the Head of School based on alternative prior learning. RP: It is strongly recommended that students should have passed EMTH118 or MATH102 before taking EMTH171. A prior or concurrent enrolment in EMTH119 or MATH103 is also recommended. If you are taking EMTH171 concurrently with EMTH118 or MATH102, you are likely to experience difficulties and need to put in extra work.

Restrictions

MATH170, MATH171
