CSCI 256 - Modeling and Simulation


Credits: 3

Prerequisites: CSCI 111 and 112. Standard practices and applications of modeling and simulation. We explore ways to model complex systems that incorporate disciplines of biology, chemistry, and physics. Students learn critical-thinking skills when reading, comprehending, and analyzing real-world systems that they then create models for. Readings are supplemented by projects which reflect scenarios where modeling and simulation would be useful. Students are evaluated on a series of coding projects, class discussion, weekly quizzes, and exams measuring the ability to identify opportunities for application and to simulate models and their environments. A final project focuses on an open-modeling opportunity in biology, chemistry, or physics Watson.
