About the course:
After a quick and general introduction to Maple (a mathematics computer program) we will look at several ways of approximating the data obtained from some experiment. We will study the Least Squares-Method and Polynomial Interpolation. At the end of the project the students will be asked to fit a line to some data in three different ways.
Note: No experience with computers is needed.
Project: The project that will be given in this class is the first of the projects assigned to students of Mat 331:Mathematical Problem Solving with Computers.
