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!
