Objectives By the end of the semester, students will to be able to: 1. Explicitly solve a variety of 1 st and 2 nd order ordinary differential equations (ODEs). 2. Understand how ODEs arise in modeling in biology, physics, chemistry, engineering, and finance. 3. Understand the connections between solutions to ODEs and direction fields. 4. Have a basic understanding of linear algebra and its role in the study of ODEs, and how to solve systems of linear ODEs....
