Mathematics (MATH)

MATH 211 (GQ) Intermediate Calculus and Differential Equations with Applications (3) Topics in ordinary differential equations, linear algebra, complex numbers, Eigenvalue solutions and Laplace transform methods.

MATH 211 Intermediate Calculus and Differential Equations with Applications (4)

MATH 211 is a three-credit course to be taken after MATH 210. The content of the course is geared toward the needs of engineering technology majors and places a large emphasis on technology and applications. The course provides mathematical tools required in the engineering technology courses at the sixth semester and above. A primary goal is to have students use technology to solve more realistic problems than the standard simplistic ones that can be solved by "pencil and paper." Student evaluation will be performed through exams, quizzes, graded assignments, and a cumulative final exam. It is expected that MATH 211 will be offered every semester with an enrollment of 44-80 students.
