Andrew M. Ross
In this class, you'll learn Prescriptive Analytics: how to model real situations as mathematical optimization (minimizing cost, maximizing lives saved, etc.), and the algorithms that computers use to solve those optimization problems. It's incredibly powerful--thousands of variables and constraints in class, and real-world problems can be solved with millions!
Upcoming classes--Winter 2014
In this class, you'll learn Predictive Analytics: how to predict what will happen in a variety of real-world situations like time series data, queueing systems, insurance, etc.
- Fall Syllabus--very little will change from Fall to Winter besides the dates.
- Note that in my sections, we shall pay special attention to the needs of pre-service teachers. So if you are a pre-service teacher, please consider signing up for my sections. All majors are welcome, of course.
