Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1980 
17 p. 

The purpose of this project was to develop a Master of Science program in Applied Mathematics designed specifically to meet the needs of students wishing to prepare for careers in business, industry, or government. The program emphasizes problem-solving, mathematical modeling, and areas of mathematics such as differential equations, computing, and probability that are most often required in the applications of mathematics to other fields. A major innovation in the curriculum is a new 1 year graduate-level course, Advanced Mathematical Modeling, which emphasizes industrial applications of mathematics and academic-industrial interaction. The latter is accomplished in two principal ways: (1) a series of lectures by applied mathematicians from industry or government and (2) student research projects proposed by local companies or government agencies. A volume of lecture notes generated during the project is being published (Pitman Publishing Limited) under the title "Case Studies in Mathematical Modeling." Appendices include requirements for the program, lectures/topics in advanced mathematical modeling, industrial projects, table of contents for Case Studies in Mathematical Modeling, and list of presentations concerning the program.
