You may also purchase the *Custom Edition*, which is the same as the
2nd Edition but also includes the *Student Solutions Manual* bound at
the back, which you may find useful. The course will follow the book
fairly closely, and homework problems will be assigned from the book.

- First-Order Differential Equations and Solution Techniques
- Qualitative Techniques (Equilbria and Stability)
- Numerical Approximation Techniques and Computing
- Systems of Linear Algebra Equations and Matrices
- Vector Spaces
- Higher-Order Linear Differential Equations
- Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors
- Systems of Linear Differential Equations
- Applications to Physics, Biology, Engineering, etc.
- Nonlinear Systems (time-permitting)
- Laplace Transform (time-permitting)

The following files will be helpful for Homework 3:

proj1-3.mws - This is a Maple worksheet; save it and load it into Maple. You can see the commands used to perform tasks like the ones you are asked to do in the homework (following what I did in lecture and the example of section 1-3 in the text book). You can hit Enter next to each Maple command to see the result.

proj1-3.pdf - This file has more explanation of the commands used in the Maple worksheet. Scroll down to page 3 under "Using Maple."

For Homework 4: proj2-4.mws and proj2-4.pdf

For Homework 6: proj3-5.mws and proj3-5.pdf (Note, use this as a guide for entering the data for the homework, and you can use the "linsolve" command to find the solution).

(Note: These were taken from the text book's web page).
