This text is intended for the undergraduate course in math methods, with an audience of physics and engineering majors. As a required course in most departments, the text relies heavily on explained examples, real-world applications and student engagement. Supporting the use of active learning, a strong focus is placed upon physical motivation combined with a versatile coverage of topics that can be used as a reference after students complete the course. Each chapter begins with an overview that includes a list of prerequisite knowledge, a list of skills that will be covered in the chapter, and an outline of the sections. Next comes the motivating exercise, which steps the students through a real-world physical problem that requires the techniques taught in each chapter.(d) (e) (f) Constrained Population Growth The logistic equation is used to model population growth in a constrained environment. As an example ... Make a table of N and dNadt. Include N ... This means that after each 1/10 of the year, she receives 1/10 of 5% interest (her money multiplies by 1.005). If she receives such interest ten times per year, how much does she have after one year? After t years ?
