      Abstract

      We present an argument for including numerical and computational methods in the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. The argument is supported by presenting a number of specific examples; some fairly elementary and some less elementary. We conclude by inviting the reader to reflect on the impact that experimental mathematics might have on the undergraduate curriculum and we offer a final example which serendipitously presented itself during the late stages of preparing this paper.
