    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You're going to need this course for sure in whatever engineering profession you pursue.

    Course highlights:

    How to apply differential equations to spring or circuit simulations.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do as much as you can, and give it everything you've got because putting in the bare minimum is not going to cut it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Surgent makes everything so easy to understand. I took an accelerated course over the summer but I still was able to get an A in the course. I could see this being very manageable for a full semester class.

    Course highlights:

    You learn the basics of DiffEq including many methods of solving various equations. It would be helpful to know some linear algebra but it's not required. Make sure to brush up on Calc 2 though!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the labs on time and get help from tutors! Tutors are there to help and are an underused resource. I never used the textbook

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Differential equations is not an easy course, especially when taken online, but Dr. Vaz made it bearable. For the online course, Dr. Vaz does not lecture in the videos. Lecture videos are taught primarily by Dr. Rochus Boerner (Dr. Vaz actually provides the lecture videos for MAT 343--Linear Algebra). As an online instructor, however, Dr. Vaz is very fair. He provides good feedback on the Piazza forum, allows you to drop your lowest of the six lab grades, provides a small bit of extra credit, and provides detailed information on the final exam.

    Course highlights:

    Differential equations is a fascinating course that explains the motion or movement of more complex functions or systems involving more than one variable. This class also has a lab in which students use Matlab to model functions or use matrix algebra functions (honestly, if you have a TI-89 or use Wolfram Alpha, they will be able to handle most of the equations and problems covered in class a lot faster and easier than programming them into Matlab, but it's still good to know how to use Matlab. Matlab can certainly handle very complex scenarios that go beyond the calculator.)

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading and practice the problems. Also, there are plenty of good YouTube videos that will explain how to use Matlab. Finally, review integrals, integrating logs, and trig. You'll use it a lot!
