Course Objective

The general purpose of this course is to provide an understanding of ordinary differential equations (ODEs), and to give methods for solving them. Because differential equations express relationships between changing quantities, this material is applicable to many fields, and is essential for students of engineering and physical sciences.

Course Content

This course covers topics in ordinary differential equations: First-order differential equations; Modeling with first-order differential equations; Higher-order differential equations; Modeling with higher-order differential equations; Laplace transform; Series solutions of Linear Equations.
