Message in a Bottle: A 3D Printing Project for Numerical Analysis LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Numerical Analysis is a fundamental course for Applied Math Majors and an elective for many CS majors. In Numerical Analysis course, students learn many of the basics of scientific computing including: creating interpolating polynomials, numerical integration, solving optimization problems, and MATLAB. In this talk, I will present a bottle design project from my Fall of 2016 class. Over the semester, students designed a bottle using the methods we learned in Numerical Analysis. We used a 3D printer to create tangible versions of their bottles and checked their calculations. As part of their final grade for the project, students had an exhibit and wrote a short reflection on the process and challenges of creating an attractive optimized bottle that meets given specifications.
