MT 191 - Applications of the Digital Computer

Credit Hours: 4

Introduction to a high-level programming language, root findings techniques, simultaneous linear equations, matrices and determinants and numerical integration.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • use a computer operating system and editor;
  • use a compiler and execute programs in a high-level language such as C++;
  • identify and implement the basics of programming in a high-level language such as C++;
  • calculate limit problems;
  • construct and utilize branching techniques in a high-level language such as C++;
  • know and implement the root finding methods of bisection Newton, and secant;
  • design, write, and debug subroutine procedures;
  • contrast the concepts of arrays and matrices;
  • perform the operations of matrices;
  • know and implement the Gauss Jordan method;
  • change algorithms into programs;
  • implement derivative programs;
  • implement integration techniques on the computer;
  • solve problems using derivatives and integration using programs written in a high-level language such as C++ (i.e., Kirchoff's Law problem); and
  • use graphing software.
