APPLIED MATHEMATICS

ABOUT

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that deals with mathematical methods that find use in science, engineering, business, computer science, and industry. Applied math is a combination of mathematical science and specialized knowledge. It is used to describe and solve practical problems by formulating and studying mathematical models. In the past, practical applications have motivated the development of mathematical theories, which then became the subject of study in pure mathematics where abstract concepts are studied for their own sake. The activity of applied mathematics is thus intimately connected with research in pure mathematics.

TUTORING RESOURCES
EnginBus_Overview_2

Applied Math Workshop

The APMA workshop is run by a team of graduate teaching assistants, and It is located in Thornton A238 on Mon-Thurs (typically 2:00 – 8:00 pm, but please check the schedule for specifics). Be sure to get help early because the workshop can become extremely crowded right before quizzes and tests. Please see the Upper & Lower level schedules for specific details because each course has a different tutoring schedule:

Tutoring is also offered to students through various organizations.

Undergraduate Program Office
Offers Academic Enrichment (peer sessions) for many subjects, including APMA. Please see the Undergraduate Resource website to learn the drop in and on demand schedule. Students may request a tutor for any course not listed through Barbara Dudley (bic2w@virginia.edu).

Eta Kappa Nu
The Electrical Engineering Honor Society offers free tutoring in many APMA, CS, ECE, and PHYS courses for all SEAS students. Please view their schedule for more information: Tutoring Schedule [needs update]

Crunch Time Reviews

Crunch Time Reviews is on hiatus as the students work on a refresh of the program.
You can always use the videos in the gallery here: Crunch Time Reviews Site.

WeBWorK Tutorial

The WeBWorK Tutorial is currently in development.

External Online Resources

Many students find sites like Khan Academy and Patrick JMT very helpful. If you have other favorite sites that help you learn and understand math, please let us know!

APMA Minor

A minor in Applied Mathematics for undergraduate students consists of five courses at the 3000 level or above, selected with the approval of the Director of Applied Mathematics. These courses must include at least two courses from APMA 3080, 3100, and 3140.

Courses may be selected from APMA offerings as well as offerings in MATH and/or STAT in the College of Arts and Sciences, if they are not substantial duplicates of Engineering School courses already taken.

You can download the minor declaration form here.
