Taught by

The full-time program Physical Systems and Applied Mathematics covers Differential Equations and Multivariable & Vector Calculus (in fall) and Linear Algebra (in winter), all at the upper division science level. Each of these subjects is available to students as stand-alone 4 credit courses by taking a partial credit option within Physical Systems and Applied Mathematics . The prerequisite for any of these courses is proficiency in one year of introductory calculus (including both differential and integral calculus). Students must demonstrate meeting prerequisites through completion of an application form and a diagnostic entrance exam, available at https://sites.evergreen.edu/psam1617/ .

Differential Equations is a rigorous course in applied mathematics, and will include concepts, procedures, and applications of: direction fields, first- and second-order differential equations, series solutions of second order differential equations, and Laplace transforms. Students will apply differential equations to modeling physical situations. Collaborative learning and context-based problem solving will be emphasized. Students will be evaluated on engagement, homework, quizzes, and exams. Class meetings are Tuesdays and Thursday 9 - 11 am. Students successfully completing this portion of the program may be awarded 4 credits of upper division science credit in Differential Equations.

Fields of study: 

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in: Mathematics, science, engineering, economics, and education.

Online learning:
  • Enhanced Online Learning - This offering requires access to web-based tools, but use of these tools does not displace any face-to-face instruction.

Proficiency in one year of introductory calculus (including both differential and integral calculus).
