Essentials of Math Modeling: A Seven-Part Series Focused on Students (Featuring MATLAB)
During this free series, high school and sixth form students enthusiastic about math will progress through the essentials of math modeling and learning MATLAB in seven sessions, two-hours each of lively and relatable instruction by a combination of early career college faculty, grad students, and undergrad students - several of whom participated in M3 Challenge in high school!

Each two-hour session includes one hour of active teaching of skills and techniques, followed by one hour of guided, interactive and collaborative work on problems.

Based on a series of workshops hosted by the University of Utah – Department of Mathematics. In cooperation with MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge (M3 Challenge), a program of SIAM.

Topic per week:
Jan 11: Overview of the math modeling process
Jan 18: Basic programming in MATLAB
Jan 25: Intro to data analysis using MATLAB and Excel
Feb 1: Models for disease spread, difference and differential equations
Feb 8: Probabilistic models
Feb 15: Introduction to regression and statistical ideas
Feb 22: Good writing practices for reports (and life) - and CRAM session for Challenge weekend!
