# ENGR 240 Applies Numerical Methods

5 credits
This course covers numerical solutions to problems in engineering and science using modern scientific computing tools. Students apply mathematical judgment in selecting computational algorithms and communicating results. An introduction to MATLAB programming for numerical computation is also included in the course.

Prerequisites: MATH& 163

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

• Program MATLAB scripts containing comments, logical and iterative flow control, file input and output, and visual plot functions
• Utilize MATLAB to manipulate data and implement numerical solution algorithms
• Explain the consequences of finite precision and the inherent limits of the numerical methods considered
• Select appropriate numerical methods to solve problems in consideration of the mathematical operations involved, accuracy requirements, and available computational resources
• Apply numerical solution algorithms to the following classes of problems: solving roots of equations, solving systems of algebraic equations, curve fitting, interpolation, numerical differentiation of data and functions, and numerical integration of data and functions
• Find solutions of ordinary differential equations, including initial value problems, boundary value problems, and systems of equations
