### AMACS: Applied Mathematics and Computational Science

## AMACS is a project that provides opportunities to learn applied mathematics and engage in hands-on projects that use mathematical modeling and scientific computing to solve multidisciplinary problems. We seek to host online courses and guided hackathons (tutorials + final project competition) for middle and high school students to promote skills in research, data analysis, programming, and communication.

##

#### Leadership

Allow more experienced students to share their expertise by creating and hosting online courses and competitions.

#### Foundations

Educate middle and high school participants on fundamental concepts in applied math and mathematical modeling.

#### Applications

Enable students to apply math and CS to solve multidisciplinary problems in physics, medicine, finance and civics.

#### Competitions

Provide hands-on, collaborative learning and project opportunities through competitions and hackathons.

### Upcoming Courses & Hackathon Theme Areas

#### Mathematics and Programming for Kinematics and Dynamics

Mathematical and Conceptual Underpinnings of Chaos Theory, Differential Equations for Celestial Mechanics, Physics Simulations in Matplotlib and Visual Python.

#### Applied Mathematics and Numerical Methods
