**By taking GG/OCN 312
students will…**

**•**Become comfortable in
applying mathematical operations commonly used to solve problems in calculus,
vector calculus, and differential equations

**•**Develop familiarity in using
computer programs (e.g., Matlab, FreeMat)
for solving simple problems, visualization, and applying basic numerical
methods

**•**Gain foundational knowledge
needed to solve problems in future coursework leading to careers in Earth
Sciences, Ocean Sciences, Biology, and Engineering

**•**Be able to learn
independently, solve problems creatively, and communicate math clearly and
accurately

**PROGRAMMATIC
STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES:**

GG student learning objectives emphasized:

2. Students can apply technical knowledge of relevant computer applications, laboratory methods, field methods, and the supporting disciplines (math, physics, chemistry, biology) to solve real-world problems in geology and geophysics.

3. Students use the scientific method to define, critically analyze, and solve a problem in earth science.

GES student learning outcomes emphasized:

1. Define and explain the basic principles and concepts of chemistry, physics, biology, calculus, geology, geophysics, meteorology, and oceanography.

2. Apply their understanding of the fundamentals of science and mathematics to the description and quantification of the interactions of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere, including humans.

3. Employ the scientific approach to problem solving, and hypothesis formation and testing.

Engineering student learning outcomes emphasized:

**•**An
ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

**•**An
ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

**•**An
ability to communicate effectively

**•**A
recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning

**Class
format. **Course material
will be learned by a combination of reading assignments, YouTube lectures, in-class
discussions, weekly problem sets, and studying for three exams. This is a “flipped” class so __lectures are
to be viewed online via YouTube PRIOR to
class__ and

**ONLINE LECTURES: **Links to the lecture videos
for each data are provided on the syllabus below. Again the lectures must be viewed__ prior to
class__.

**WEEKLY PROBLEM SETS and READING Reading** will reinforce the lectures and will provide formal background to do
the problem sets. __Problem sets are
due on Fridays at 9:30 a.m.____ at the beginning of class__. Only under extraordinary,
incredible, unusually extenuating circumstance can a problem set be turned in
late; and you must obtain permission __prior to the due date__.

**Software: **Computer
programming literacy
is an important part of applied math.
Some of the class exercises will provide practice in this. For these, you will need Matlab,
or a free-ware version such as Freemat or Octave.
Click here for a tutorial on FreeMat and here for a full
list of commands and how to use them.

**grading**: 5% class participation, 45% problem sets, 15% midterm 1, 15% midterm 2, 20% final.

**HONOR
CODE: **Our class
culture will be built upon respectful and honest interaction. You are encouraged to work together on your
problem sets, but all work turned in for grading (including computer programs) must
be yours, and yours alone. Unless
specifically designated, there will be no collaborations during exams. Cheating will not be tolerated, and everyone
is responsible for upholding our honor code.
