25 Problems for STEM Education introduces a new and emerging course for undergraduate STEM programs called Physical-Mathematical Informatics. This course corresponds with the new direction in education called STE(A)M (Science, Technology, Engineering, [Art] and Mathematics). The book focuses on undergraduate university students (and high school students), as well as the teachers of mathematics, physics, chemistry and other disciplines such as the humanities. This book is suitable for readers who have a basic understanding of mathematics and math software.
