## Solutions of Equations

Plot a function to help determine the location of its zeros.

> f := x -> x^6 - 3*x^5 - 5*x^4 + 15*x^3 + 4*x^2 - 12*x ;

> plot( f(x), x = -4..4 ) ;

Plot a function to help determine the location of its zeros.

> f := x -> x^6 - 3*x^5 - 5*x^4 + 15*x^3 + 4*x^2 - 12*x ;

> plot( f(x), x = -4..4 ) ;

- Example: a function of one variable. Here

f(x) = x3 - 4x2 + cos x

> f := x -> x^3 - 4*x^2 + cos(x) ;

defines f as a function of x (rather than as an expression)

Some people just want more of a good thing! At Kettering University there is the opportunity to elect a dual major in Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The program is coordinated between the two departments so that students can graduate with the dual major in the minimum number of extra terms.

Industrial Engineers (IEs) fromKetteringUniversityare educated in all of the primary fields within the discipline. Freshman are taught basic manufacturing processes and materials. Sophomores are taught engineering economics. Juniors learn statistics, work design, and fundamentals of operations research. Seniors learn workplace ergonomics, facility design, supply chain and logistics engineering, and quality assurance. The program has a capstone course where students work in teams to solve industrial problems.

**Industrial Engineering**

The Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering offers an ABET accredited bachelor of science degree in Industrial Engineering.
