MTH 690 Applied Mathematics for Secondary School
4 hours; 4 credits
An application of algebra, trigonometry, and calculus to the analysis and description of wave motion. The theory of transverse and longitudinal waves, the propagation of these waves, as well as applications to a variety of problems in nature will be studied. Applications will be chosen from the study of sound and light waves, water waves, the sound of music, traffic flow, shockwaves, and wave mechanics. Historical and cultural aspects will be stressed.
