equations, which relate the rates of change of a function with
respect to one or more of its variables to the values of the
function itself, are the language of modern science, and have
been since the work of Newton that ushered in the modern
scientific era. Math 23 is an introduction to ordinary
differential equations, along with a very brief glimpse of one
or two important partial differential equations.

Mathematics is a very difficult subject to absorb in real time, and even professional mathematicians often get lost in lectures. Thus, in order to optimize the utility of the lectures, it is very important to have read and thought about the reading assignment before the lecture, jotting down notes and questions as you go. This will prepare you for what is to come in the lecture, will make the lecture much easier to follow, and will perhaps raise questions in your mind that you can ask during the lecture if they are not already resolved. After the lecture, a careful rereading of the assignment will solidify the concepts.
