The Objectives and Creation of a Course of Simulations/Case Studies for the Teaching of Engineering Mathematics
Clements, L. S.; Clements, R. R.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 9, 1, 97-117, Feb 78
A course is described which gives students experience in creating practical mathematical models of "real" problems, relating the mathematical solutions of the model to the original problem, and recognizing non-mathematical constraints on possible solution approaches. The students assume the role of industrial mathematicians while their tutors play the role of superior. (MN)
