What's Included

Computational science, not to be confused with “computer science”, looks to answer this question: “how can computers and mathematics be used to study interesting problems in science and social science?” Computational science is sometimes known as “modeling and simulation” or “scientific computing”, and looks to create and use mathematical models to study complicated and complex problems in all areas of study. This course introduces students to the technologies, techniques, and tools of computational science, and serves as a foundation for advanced work in bioinformatics, medicinal chemistry, data science, and scientific programming. Students taking this course will have a significant advantage over other high school students in that they will have an increased understanding of the role of scientific computing. Research labs at the university level make significant use of computing in doing scientific research, and students completing this course will have the skills and knowledge to work in university-level computational research labs. All students in this course will be required to purchase and install Mathematica.
