Catalog Description:

First order ordinary differential equations and applications, linear higher order differential equations, systems of linear differential equations, series solutions of differential equations, Laplace transforms.

Course Objectives:

This course aims to introduce the student into the field of Differential Equations, classify the types of Differential Equations and introduce to him different techniques of solutions. The focus in this course is on determining the analytical solution.

Course Outcomes:

1- Knowledge and Understanding: The student is able to classify differential equations and derives some methods to solve them.

2- Intellectual Skills: By the end of the course the student is expected to choose the suitable technique for the differential equation and find its solution.

3- Practical Skills: By the end of the course the student will be able to classify the types of differential equations, use available techniques for solving differential equations and model some processes mathematically into differential equations.

4- Transferable Skills: Within the lectures the student is able to transfer ideas and experience, work effectively both in a team and independently, solve problems analytically and use computational packages such as MATLAB for solving differential equations.
