Description

Many problems within physical geography require a quantitative answer, but the problems rarely take the streamlined form most math courses and textbooks present, and their solution often requires information from several disciplines. Thus, the typical series of required math and science courses does not always prepare physical geography students for real-world problem solving. this course is designed to fill this need by focusing on the application of mathematical principles and models to solve problems commonly encountered in physical geography. Throughout the course, the students will be introduced to a broad survey of mathematical methods relevant for problems within physical geography.
