This course begins with a brief introduction to writing programs in a higher level language, such as Mathematica. Students are taught fundamental principles regarding machine representation of numbers, types of computational errors, and propagation of errors. The numerical methods include finding zeros of functions, solving systems of linear equations, interpolation and approximation of functions, numerical integration and differentiation, and solving initial value problems of ordinary differential equations.

Prerequisite: MA 116; Corequisite: MA 221 or permission of the instructor.
