The Past, Present, and Future of the Federal Reserve
The Federal Reserve, often cloaked in mystery, has touched all of our lives and changed the path of history. In this course we will examine the 100-year history of the Federal Reserve, from its founding in 1913 to the role it played in the 2007-2008 financial crisis.
The course consists of stacked learning modules that are somewhat self-contained. Each one is motivated by a problem that can be modeled by a differential equation (or system of DEs) and builds new concepts in numerical computing, new coding skills and ideas about analysis of numerical solutions.
This course aims to give a foundation in the classical theories of aerodynamics of ideal fluids, as they apply to aerospace engineering design, and it aims to provide competency in solution methods and understanding of their approximation power and sources of error.
This course prepares healthcare practitioners to lead patient safety and quality improvement initiatives. Participants learn the science underlying patient safety and how to measure and analyze patient safety problems, apply systematic approaches to address quality improvement challenges, and lead a culture of change.
