Computational Science and Engineering - I

Prof. Gilbert Strang, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

This is perhaps the course that aligns most closely with the goals of Mechanics Academy. In it, Prof. Strang presents a review of of numerous topics---including linear algebra and differential equations---and demonstrates their applicability to interesting problems. Through the course, he also emphasizes numerical solutions in MATLAB, which play a big part of the usage of mathematics in real-world applications.
