Have your calculators ready!
Join Us on March 26th for a Math Circles all about Applied Mathematics!
Please RSVP so we know how much pizza to order!
We look forward to new faces and seeing our regulars!
Who: Dr. Paul Muir (St. Mary's University)
What: A Brief Introduction to Computational Applied Math
When: Wednesday, March 26th 5:30pm-7:30pm
Where: Chase Building (Dalhousie University)
Mathematics is useful! Mathematics is applied almost everywhere;
examples include weather prediction, global positioning systems (GPS), medical imaging, and financial modeling. Most applications lead to mathematical models; these are systems of equations whose solutions tell us something about the application. Most mathematical models are too complex or too large or both and therefore computers have to be used to obtain an approximate solution to the equations. The study of methodsthat allow computers to solve mathematical problems is called Computational Mathematics or Numerical Analysis. In this session, we will learn about a
few famous algorithms from computational mathematics and use them to obtain approximate solutions to some mathematical models arising in several applications. Please bring a calculator as some hands-on exercises exploring the use of numerical algorithms will be included!
NEW: Junior High Workshops!
Over the summer we developed more junior high workshops (grades 7-9), so if you are interested in having us visit your junior high class, please contact us!
