Student Learning Outcomes

1. Formulate mathematical models from word problems.
2. Transform linear programming models into standard form linear programs which can be solved by the Simplex Method or Revised Simplex Method.
3. Construct dual linear programs of primal linear programs and use the dual programs to solve and/or analyze the primal linear program
4. Formulate and solve a number of classical linear programming problems such as transportation problems, assignment problems and network flow problems while taking advantage of the special structure of these problems.
