MATH 274: Differential Equations

5 Cr
Quarters: S
This course applies analytic methods for solving first order (and higher order) linear and nonlinear, homogeneous and nonhomogeneous ordinary differential equations (together with initial value and boundary value problems) including series solutions, Laplace transforms, Euler’s method, and matrix methods to solve systems of linear differential equations. The course will include modeling applications in engineering, physics, chemistry, and population studies. Data visualization using appropriate technology will also be emphasized. Topics may also include advanced numerical methods, as time allows.  
Prerequisite: Completion of MATH& 152  with a grade of C or better.
Note: A graphing calculator is required for this class. The calculator should be equivalent TI-84+ or TI-nspire (not CAS).
Recommended: MATH 220  is strongly recommended.
