STEM Problems with Mathcad and Python seeks to remove the fear of tackling difficult scientific and technical calculations for future mathematicians, engineers, scientists, and other STEM researchers. The authors hope to show that such calculations can be not only useful, but that the process of learning how to do them can be enjoyable, especially with the help of Mathcad and Python programming skills. The book will also illustrate how the use of modern computer software allows one to significantly expand the range of problems considered beyond those conventionally taught. This includes computational experiments, multivariate calculations, inverse problems and optimization problems, with both static and animated visual feedback.
