Course Description: This course provides an introduction into the field of Applied Mathematics. In particular, the emphasis is upon mathematical tools to describe and analyze real world phenomena which play a central role, for instance, in the applied and natural sciences. However, the focus will lie ’only’ on models resulting in ordinary differential and integral equations. Still, this course requires you (the student) to already be familiar with basic concepts from ordinary differential equations as well as linear algebra. Finally, to solve the resulting models, this course will only address analytical tools (the ones involving the use of pen and paper) rather than computational tools (the ones involving the use of computers).
Remote Teaching: Due to the recent COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, Dartmouth has decided that all courses must be held exclusively via remote access in the Spring term of 2020. To achieve this, we will procede as follows in this course:
- Every Monday, a new script and homework assignment will be uploaded (to Canvas)
- You will work on the homework assignments in teams of 2 or 3 persons
- You have to submit your solutions until 6 am of the subsequent Monday (so approximately one week later)
- Starting in the second week, I will set up a private Zoom meeting with every group (roughly 30 minutes) once a week. During these meetings, you will get feedback on your homework and you will have the opportunity to consult me regarding the material in the script as well as the next homework assignment.
- Your grade will based only on your homework assignments. Please see Grading for more information!
