Prerequisites: Good algebra and general math skills. If you know more math, we'll use more, but we'll develop most of the mathematics we need as we need it. We'll also be using computers to solve some problems. However, no programming experience is necessary, unless you want to write your own programs.
Course Instructor: Dr. Charles R. (Chuck) Collins (B.S., Texas A&M University; Ph.D., University of Minnesota) is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at UT, where he teaches a wide range of courses from Calculus to graduate level seminars in Numerical Analysis. His main focus is on developing mathematical models of real-world situations and then determining how to best solve the resulting problem efficiently on a computer.
