Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:
  1. Recognise and solve various types of first and second order differential equations and some higher order ordinary differential equations
  2. Set up a linear 2D system of differential equations and investigate its solution and the nature of its critical points
  3. Apply Laplace transforms in solving problems
  4. Use multivariable calculus techniques competently
  5. Evaluate multiple (double and triple) integrals.
