### MAT-120 : Intro to MathematicalModeling

Academic Level:

Undergraduate

*A study of the use of mathematics to examine a series of genuine elementary applications. Students will consider a contextual situation, develop a mathematical model that describes the situation, use systematic exploration to identify solutions, and examine the behavior of the solutions in the context of the situation at hand. Models considered include: arithmetic, quadratic, geometric, and logistic, as well as combinations of these. 3 credits FULFILLS MATHEMATICS LAI PREREQUISITES: CC 102 AND DEMONSTRATED READINESS FOR LAI MATHEMATICS BY PLACEMENT OR COMPLETION OF MAT 100.*
