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