Numerical methods have been used to solve mathematical expressions of engineering and scientific problems for at least 4000 years. Such methods apply numerical approximation in order to convert continuous mathematical problems (for example, determining the mechanical stress throughout a loaded truss) into systems of discrete equations that can be solved with sufficient accuracy by machine. This course will provide you with an introduction to several of those numerical methods which you may then find opportunity to practice later in the curriculum.
