Math 2250002/005: Differential Equations and Linear Algebra
Fall 2011
Course Description: This course is an introduction to differential equations, and how they are used
to model problems arising in engineering and science. Linear algebra is introduced as a tool for
analyzing systems of differential equations, as well as standard linear equations. Computer
projects will be assigned to enhance the material. We will cover most of chapters 110 in the
EdwardsPenney text, in addition to two supplementary sections which cover RLC electrical
circuits and additional Laplace transform material.
