Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. choose and apply key mathematical and statistical techniques for solving problems in a diverse collection of scientific disciplines.
2. organize and clean data; critically assess the origin of the data and method of data analysis.
3. interpret the results of the modeling process to reach sound scientific conclusions within the problem’s economic, scientific, and social context.
4. propose a project (individually or in a group) and devise strategies and practices to do the research work that will lead, with the support of computational software (e.g. Maple, Mathematica, R, Matlab), to the writing of a technical report using professional typesetting software (e.g., LaTeX).
