Problem solving heuristics are discussed throughout the course and developed in conjunction with the models discussed. **In both NSC 2005C and NSC 2006C, the student will be expected to write technical reports on classroom exercises. Students must also complete an individual modeling and experimental design experience involving the gathering, analyzing and interpretation of numerical data.
