I'm not quite sure what this course will entail, but it sounds interesting as I've been very interested in simulations like this, albeit it is a math class (MA1600) and my question is mainly this: what exactly would a class like this entail? What are the usual languages used? I've been required to learn matlab and Mathematica for my studies (Michigan Technological University) and here is the course description; ( MA1160/1161 is calculus 1) "Intro to Sci Simulation Introduction to simulation, a powerful computational tool for many scientific problems. Case studies and projects will be drawn from various fields. Prior programming experience is not required; all necessary computational skills will be developed in the course. Credits: 3.0 Lec-Rec-Lab: (0-2-2) Semesters Offered: Spring Pre-Requisite(s): MA 1160 or MA 1161"
