Module Description: This module introduces the student to differential equations and examines classical and modern (Laplace transforms) methods for solving differential equations. It also treats further topics in calculus such as line and multiple integrals.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Formulate, identify and solve first order differential equations.
LO2 Solve second order linear differential equations with constant coefficients using classical methods.
LO3 Use the method of Laplace transforms to solve differential equations and systems of differential equations.
LO4 Evaluate line, double and triple integrals.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
Co-requisite Modules
No Co-requisite modules listed

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.
