The study of differential equations is an important part of mathematics that involves many topics, both theoretical and practical. The course will cover first- and second-order ordinary differential equations, basic theorems concerning existence and uniqueness of solutions and continuous dependence on parameters, long-term behavior of solutions and approximate solutions. The focus of the course will be on connecting the theoretical aspects of differential equations with real-world applications from physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering. Four class hours per week.
This course is expected to include both synchronous and asynchronous class sessions and activities, and opportunities for peer engagement.
Requisite: MATH 211 or consent of the instructor. Limited to 25 students. Spring semester. Professor Yacoubou Djima.
If Overenrolled: Preference to seniors and mathematics majors.
