Please include your name and which class you are enrolled in within your e-mail. Prerequisites: MATH 2574 with a “C” or better. Text: A First Course in Differential Equations with Modeling Application, Ninth Edition . Dennis Zill. Thomson/ Brooks Cole. . Course Description This course is intended for students who are enrolled in a transfer degree such as the Associate of Science and will be obtaining a technical, science or mathematics based degree at a four year institution. It is designed to transfer to a university as a first course in differential equations. This depends, of course, on the transfer institution. Topics will include first and second order ordinary differential equations; Laplace Transforms; systems of ordinary differential equations and eigenvectors. Course Objectives General course objectives include: 1) Classification of various types of differential equations 2) Solving first -order differential equations according to their types 3) General theory of nth order linear equations and their solutions using method of undetermined coefficients and variation of parameters. 4) Study of Laplace transforms and apply them to solve initial value problems with constant coefficients 5) Study solutions of first order linear systems 6) Modeling various types of differential equations in physical situations Grade Allocation Note: The grade ranges below are definitive. I do not round or curve . If you need a particular grade, please make sure you earn at least the minimum number of points required to receive that grade. For example, 419 total points earns a grade of D, 539 points earns a B, etc. A = 540 – 600 pts,
