Hello all, I have recently started a course at my University called Introduction to Mathematical Modeling. However, the course does not require/recommend a textbook, and I am someone who really depends on having a textbook in order to learn. I have asked the professor to recommend me some textbooks, but I also wanted to get a second opinion from the people on this forum. This is a description of the course: This is a project-oriented course offering the opportunity to discover how various real world problems can be described and analyzed with the aid of simple mathematical models and computer simulations.Possible project topics include operation of a fuse, spread of pollutants in a river, propagation of an infectious disease, traffic flow on a highway, oscillating chemical reactions, population growth in biology,etc. Also, the prereqs for this course are Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
