COURSE OBJECTIVES : This course is designed for students in Science and Engineering. It will offer students a basic but solid background in numerical simulation for solving scientific problems. Students will learn to use MATLAB and/or other available symbolic and numerical computation software throughout the course. The course will cover essentially the main topics mentiond above.
HOMEWORK: Will be assigned and collected in lectures and/or in the Lab. No late homeworks will be accepted.
MAKE UP TESTS: No make up tests.
Unexcused test absences result in a score of zero for the missing test. Excused absences require extenuating circumstances and advance notice; the missing grade will be replaced by the Final Exam grade.
All adjustments to any grade must be made within 3 days of the work being returned in class. Absolutely no adjustments and no late work will be accepted after the last class period.
Note: The course syllabus provides a general plan for the course; deviations may be necessary.
ACADEMIC HONESTY: All students are responsible for maintaining the highest standards of honesty and integrity in every phase of their academic careers. The penalties for academic dishonesty are severe and ignorance is not an acceptable defense. The Department Policy applies: see overleaf.
