  • Sophomore/Junior level course on linear programming using the simplex method
  • Pre-requisite: Matrix Linear Algebra
  • Provides training in using and understanding a standard tool used to solve economics and business optimization problems. For pure math majors it provides a concrete application of the power of combining linear algebra and geometry to solve optimization problems.
  • Course incorporates the use of Sage to execute the simplex method.
