Measurable Outcome Index

The Measurable Outcomes Index provides the links associated to each of the measurable outcomes for the course, arranged according to three units. Each unit corresponds to a set of outcomes that you will be able to demonstrate upon successfully completing that unit. The outcomes are stated in a manner such that they can (hopefully) be measured. The entire course is designed to help you achieve these outcomes. Further, the various assessment problems and exams are designed to address one or more of these outcomes. Throughout 16.90, as you consider your progress on learning a particular unit, you should always review these measurable outcomes and ask yourself: Can I demonstrate each measurable outcome?

By clicking on a measurable outcome below, you will see the content you can use to learn about that measurable outcome and the content that we use to assess your understanding of that measurable outcome, except for measurable outcomes 3.13 - 3.16 and 3.18 - 3.20. You can also visualize these outcomes and their relationships to one another at MIToces.  

Unit 1: Numerical Integration of Ordinary Differential Equations

Unit 2: Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations

Unit 3: Probabilistic Methods and Optimization
