Mathematical programming is a method for maximizing (minimizing) an objective function under constraints. The problems handled
by this method are also called mathematical programming problems or optimization problems, and appear very often as mathematical
models of engineering problems. For example, a production planning problem to produce a product with limited resources and
maximize profit, or a transportation problem to minimize the cost of transporting a product from multiple factories to a delivery
destination.

In this class, students learn how to solve basic linear and nonlinear programming problems. In addition, students will learn how to perform calculations using Excel.

In this class, students learn how to solve basic linear and nonlinear programming problems. In addition, students will learn how to perform calculations using Excel.

The purpose of this class is to understand the purpose of mathematical programming and to be able to calculate not only by
hand but also by using a computer.

- To be able to solve linear programming problems.
- To be able to solve nonlinear programming problems.
