MATH240 is introduction to differential equations. It is designed to introduce students to the basic concepts and techniques of differential equations. The course covers the standard materials addressed in the first semester of college differential equations to include: first and second order differential equations, Laplace transforms and differential equations with variable coefficients. Problems have been selected to illustrate the applications of these techniques across a wide range of areas of science, technology, and economics. It is essential for engineering, science, and economics. Increasingly, applications in business management and related fields also employ the calculus. (Prerequisite: MATH227 or equivalent)
