About the course: In this course you will learn some mathematical methods that will help you find the solutions to some engineering problems. For example: you will learn about the algebra of complex numbers; matrices and determinants and how to apply these concepts to solve linear systems of equations. You will also learn exact methods for solving 1st. and 2nd. order differential equations including their applications. By the end of the course you will be able to solve linear systems of ordinary differential equations.
