Math 215-201, Term 2, Winter 2013-2014


Welcome to the course webpage for section 201 of math 215 (section 202 page here)!

This is a course in ordinary differential equations, but rest assured, there's nothing ordinary about what we'll be studying in this course ☺! Differential equations are everywhere - most daily processes are governed by differential equations: how a coffee cools, how diseases spread, how the fuel cells in buses operate, how the planets of our solar system orbit the sun - everywhere, really! In Math 215, we'll start to explore the magic of differential equations.

This page will be updated semi-regularly during the January-April term, with regular updates posted on twitter (scroll down) and sent via email.
