Learn to build and use mathematical models with MATHEMATICAL MODELING AND COMPUTER SIMULATION! Through the description of mathematical and computer models in a variety of situations, this mathematics text helps you learn that model building is a dynamic process involving simplification, approximation, abstraction, analysis, computation, and comparison. Case studies illustrate how the model building process is applied to real life situations arising in a variety of settings, including business, genetics, population biology, and social science. An appendix on student projects provides you with a selection of classroom-tested projects with hints and suggestions for organizing project work and communicating results.
