Course Description

This is an introductory course in ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The primary focus will be on techniques for finding explicit solutions to ODEs. We will also study some nonlinear equations, elementary numerical methods, and ways of qualitatively describing solutions of ODEs without solving them explicitly.
