Division: Natural Science and Math
Course: MATH 2250
Title: Linear Algebra and Differential Equations
Description: This course explores methods of solving ordinary differential equations which describe much of the physical phenomena in our world. The course introduces principles of linear algebra to facilitate the analysis of systems of differential equations. Linear algebra topics will include matrix operations, vector spaces, systems of linear equations, and eigensystems. The course examines techniques for solving linear and nonlinear first-order differential equations as well as higher-order linear equations. Other topics will include initial-value and boundary-value problems, Laplace transforms, numerical methods, and modeling.The course is designed for students with majors in specific engineering and science disciplines. Students with majors in other science and engineering disciplines, and students with a mathematics major should take Math 2270 (Linear Algebra) and Math 2280 (Differential Equations) instead of Math 2250.
