Differential equations, first order equations, theory of higher order linear differential equations, Laplace transforms, solutions of systems of differential equations using operator and matrix methods. Some series solution and nonlinear problems. Prerequisite: MAT142 or equivalent.
While not absolutely required, using computational software or a sophisticated calculator can provide an increased level of understanding and make this class more enjoyable. If you have access to and are familiar with a tool such as Sage or Mathematica you are encouraged to use any of these as you do your work in this course.
