This module investigates the use of computer algebra, numerical techniques and computer graphics as tools for developing the understanding and the solution of a number of problems in the mathematical sciences. Topics that will be addressed will include linear algebra, the solution of algebraic equations, the generation and use of quadrature rules and the numerical solution of differential equations and, time permitting, some other aspects of computational mathematics. The computer language used is Maple.
