DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS, NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITYMTH G131: Introduction to mathematical methods and modeling.Suggestions for course project1)This project concerns determining the trajectory of a rocket. We started the analysisin one of the Problem sessions. The equation of motion is deduced using Newton’s Law;assuming a constant rate of ‘burn’ for the fuel and a constant rate at which exhaust gasesare emitted, you can compute the trajectory as a function of time. In this project you willinclude the effects of air resistance and decreasing gravity as the rocket ascends. So youwill need to (a) get the equation of motion, (b) solve it for some special cases, (c) get anumerical solution for the general case, (d) use realistic numbers for the parameters, (e)output a nice graph showing altitude as a function of time.2)The TCP protocol on the Internet can be modeled as a community of users all competingfor a finite resource (in this case bandwidth). Each user probes the network for availablebandwidth, and slowly increases its transmission rate. When the combined transmission

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
