MATH 043. Basic Differential Equations
This course emphasizes the standard techniques used to solve differential equations, covering the basic theory of the field with an eye toward practical applications. Topics may include first-order equations, linear differential equations, series solutions, first-order systems of equations, Laplace transforms, approximation methods, and some partial differential equations. Compare with MATH 044 . Students may not take both MATH 043 and MATH 044 for credit. The department prefers majors to take MATH 044 .
Prerequisite: A grade of C or better in MATH 033 , MATH 034 or MATH 035 ; or a grade of B or better in MATH 025 and currently enrolled in one of MATH 034 or MATH 035 ; or permission of the instructor.
