This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of linear algebra and ordinary differential equations. In the field of linear algebra, we?ll cover matrices and matrix operations, Gaussian elimination, matrix inverses, determinants, vector spaces and subspaces, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and linear transformations. In the field of ODEs we?ll cover separable and first-order linear equations, 2nd order linear equations with constant coefficients, method of undetermined coefficients, simple harmonic motion, and systems of differential equations. Applications to physical and life sciences will also be explored.
Prerequisites: MTH 220 and MTH 260
