Module 3: Introduction Modeling

Learning Objective: This week focuses on introducing the students to modeling and simulation.

While the coding portion of the module isn't due until the end of the module, it is always best to review the programming challenges and extensions at the beginning of the week, ask questions about them and start coding.

Videos Watch before class

These videos reference a few mathematical and scientific concepts that you might not have heard of yet. That’s ok--just focus on how modeling is being used. You don't need to understand everything they're talking about.
