Lectures & Guidelines |
This is a course on Advanced Engineering Mathematicss and it is in three parts. The first part will cover Ordinary Differential Equations. The second part will focus on Vectors, Matrices and Vector Calculus, and the third part will cover Systems of Differential Equations. It is assumed that students have studied undergraduate calculus, some linear algebra (or, at least, heard about it). More specifically, a selection topics from the following areas will be studied: I. Introduction to
Differential Equations The purpose of our class meetings is to help you obtain
the core material that will allow you to learn through your own work
outside the classroom. Therefore, an essential part of your positive
learning process is to look for additional information from the library
and other sources namely, my office hours. Three short projects/labwork
will be assigned. Homework will be assigned using the
"Enhanced
WebAssign: Cengage Learning" system. To
Students with Special Needs: Students with documented learning disabilities are entitled by law to certain “reasonable accommodations.” If you have a documented reason for special accommodations, you must provide written evidence of this as soon as possible from the appropriate office. No accommodations can or will be given without the requisite documentation. Academic Integrity: Violations of the Code of Academic Integrity are taken very seriously.
