MAT 212 - Differential Equations

4 credit hours - Four hours weekly; one term.
This course meets the Mathematics General Education Requirement

Analyze and solve ordinary differential equations of various types: separable, exact, linear equations of all orders and systems of linear equations. Master techniques including integrating factors, undetermined coefficients, the Wronskian, variation of parameters, reduction of order, power series, Laplace transforms and numerical approximations. Solve systems of linear equations using operator methods, numerical approximations and matrix methods. Apply these techniques to various applications including trajectories, mixing, growth, decay, vibrating springs, electric circuits and resonance. Use a mathematical software system as an integral and substantial part of the course.

Prerequisite(s): MAT 192 .

Crosslisted: Also offered as MAT 212H ; credit is not given for both MAT 212 and MAT 212H .

Note: Typically offered at MC and OL; fall, spring, and summer terms.
