Course Description

Lecture: Yes
Lab: No
Tutorial: Yes
This course will provide students with an introduction to vector calculus, analytical, and numerical solution methods for ordinary differential equations.  The topics of the course will be prresented through problems, models and applications relevant to the Mechanical Engineering Program. On completion of the course students will be able to:  manipulate vectors; perform numerical integration; solve first- and higher-order ordinary differential equations analytically and numerically. Students will solve problems analytically and computationally in an active learning, tutorial environment.
