MATH - 060. Environmental Math I


3 credit(s)
An introduction to some of the important issues in environmental science coupled with the basic mathematical ideas, tools, and techniques necessary to grapple with them. Scientific topics may include climate change, fuel economy, X-ray detectability of lung cancer cell clusters, biodiversity, fertility rates in developing countries, and spread of tropical diseases to new populations. To address these issues, measurement, parts per billion and other ratios, histograms, functions, and regression, as well as other mathematical topics, will be considered. Each mathematical idea will be illustrated immediately with an environmental application.

Prerequisite(s): No prerequisites.
