Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
If you are planning to go to engineering school, differential equation will haunt you all the time, so it is important to have a instructor who explains "why".
Course highlights:
The highlight of this course is the lecture. This course made me consider the importance of understanding the principles behind the equations and answers.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
This course is meant to provide you in sight into what differential equation is and how it can be applied. Go to the lecture and learn how to apply the concepts you learned in the equation you have.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The professor is very effective and compassionate. He motivates the students to do better, while trying to be as accommodating as possible.
Course highlights:
Evidently, I learned about differential equations and how to critically solve problems. Topics I learned included Laplace Transformations and finding general solutions to differential equations.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Do the problems - actually do them yourself. Practicing these problems will help you understand, and just reading about it will not as much.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
This was a great course with a lot of interesting information. I loved Calculus going into this course, and it felt like an extension of calculus. I found the material very interesting. Additionally, the professor was fabulous. He was intent on helping his students understand the material and was more than happy to answer questions. There were also many practice problems at the end of each section of the online textbook that were very helpful in studying for quizzes and exams.
Course highlights:
I loved that we learned multiple methods to solve a problem. This was great because you could then choose which method you used on the exams. It was important to be familiar with all methods in case the problems specified which method to use, but usually you could choose whichever one was easiest for you to understand. I loved this because they were more focused on making sure you know how to think critically and solve problems than the details behind how you solve them.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to start the Matlab assignments early. They are pretty straightforward, but it can sometimes take a while to debug your code.
