About the Course

The course is primarily intended as an introduction to mathematical modelling and problem solving for students with limited experience in the use of mathematics in engineering, but which may come to work in different areas where mathematics is useful.

The main purpose of the course is to provide the student with the ability to apply the theoretical mathematics to solve problems in science and technology. With application oriented exercises, and by teaching modelling and problem solving techniques, the course then bridges the gap between the theoretical courses in mathematics and relevant applications. The course also includes a broader summary of mathematical thinking.

The core of the course is a number of application oriented exercises, which are used as a starting point for the student's own learning. The problems have been carefully selected to develop the student's own skills in modelling and solving problems in a investigative way. The exercises illustrate many areas of application and are organized after the main model types.
