Module 11: Final Project

Learning Objective:  For the final project the students form teams and work on modeling projects. The students will pick a problem to model, abstract the problems, develop the model and run experiments on the model they developed. The model may be the provided Swarmathon or networks module or an independent project of your own choosing (choose only 1 of the options).

Intermediate programing steps are due in class as specified by the project you are working on below. The completed program will be turned in as normal (like all previous labs) by 11:59pm on Friday (5/5)
