Numerical Analysis

Numerical analysis is the study of the methods used to solve problems ... (more)

Numerical analysis is the study of the methods used to solve problems involving continuous variables. It is a highly applied branch of mathematics and computer science, wherein abstract ideas and theories become the quantities describing things we can actually touch and see. Suggested prerequisites for this course are MA211: Linear Algebra, MA221: Differential Equations, and either MA302/CS101: Introduction to Computer Science, or a background in some programming language. Programming ideas will be illustrated in pseudocode and implemented in the open-source high-level computing environment. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: show how numbers are represented on the computer, and how errors from this representation affect arithmetic; analyze errors and have an understanding of error estimation; be able to use polynomials in several ways to approximate both functions and data, and to match the type of polynomial approximation to a given type of problem; be able to solve equations in one unknown real variable using iterative methods and to understand how long these methods take to converge to a solution; derive formulas to approximate the derivative of a function at a point, and formulas to compute the definite integral of a function of one or more variables; choose and apply any of several modern methods for solving systems of initial value problems based on properties of the problem. This free course may be completed online at any time. (Mathematics 213) (less)

This module describes how missing data can be managed while maintaining data quality. It explains how to plan for missing data; defines different types of Ňmissingness;Ó outlines the benefits of documenting missing data and illustrates how to document missing data; and describes procedures to minimize missing data. Upon completion of this module, students will be able to explain why data managers should strive to minimize missing data and develop a plan to record or code why data are missing. (less)

David McCandless turns complex data sets (like worldwide military spending, media buzz, Facebook status updates) into beautiful, simple diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections. Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut -- and it may just change the way we see the world. A quiz, thought provoking question, and links for further study are provided to create a lesson around the 18-minute video. Educators may use the platform to easily "Flip" or create their own lesson for use with their students of any age or level. (less)

Ever wondered how a computer processes data into information? This unit will help you to understand the distinction between the two and examines how a computer-based society impacts on daily life. You will learn what computers can do with data to produce information and how computers can be used to work with data and search for it, control machines, and support commercial operations. (less)

Prediction is at the heart of almost every scientific discipline, and the study of generalization (that is, prediction) from data is the central topic of machine learning and statistics, and more generally, data mining. Machine learning and statistical methods are used throughout the scientific world for their use in handling the "information overload" that characterizes our current digital age. Machine learning developed from the artificial intelligence community, mainly within the last 30 years, at the same time that statistics has made major advances due to the availability of modern computing. However, parts of these two fields aim at the same goal, that is, of prediction from data. This course provides a selection of the most important topics from both of these subjects. (less)

Forecasting is the ultimate form of model validation. But even if a perfect model is in hand, imperfect forecasts are likely. This course will cover the factors that limit our ability to produce good forecasts, will show how the quality of forecasts can be gauged a priori (predicting our ability to predict!), and will cover the state of the art in operational atmosphere and ocean forecasting systems.
