Advanced Functions and Modeling is a course intended to give students experience with applied mathematics.
"When am I ever going to use this?" is the question that this course is intended to answer.
We begin by revisiting some of the mathematical models students learned about in Algebra and Geometry, and almost immediately begin using these tools to represent real world phenomenon.
Worried about being bored by seeing the same old stuff? Not to worry!
We have plenty of "new" stuff to explore as well. Univariate statistics and modeling data sets using distributions, probability of compound events, gaming theory, sequences and series, recursion models, and maybe even a little bit of programming!
Glad to have you with us and here's to a fascinating year!
