This course will cover mathematical techniques involving ordinary differential equations used in the analysis of physical, biological, and economic phenomena. The course emphasizes established methods and their applications rather than rigorous foundation. Topics include: first and second order differential equations, an introduction to numerical methods, series solutions, and Laplace transformations.
Prerequisites: MATH 0100, 0170, 0180, 0190, 0200, or 0350, or AP Calculus BC score 4 or 5.
