Course Description

Phenomena as diverse as the motion of the planets, the spread of a disease, and the oscillations of a suspension bridge are governed by differential equations. This course is an introduction to the mathematical theory of ordinary differential equations and follows a modern dynamical systems approach. In particular, equations are analyzed using qualitative, numerical, and if possible, symbolic techniques.

MATH226 is essentially the edX equivalent of MA226; a one-semester course in ordinary differential equations taken by more than 500 students per year at Boston University. It is divided into three parts. MATH226.2x is the second part.

This is a perfect course for me. Prof Blanchard speaks so calmly, clearly. The content is very complete. Matlab is used to visualise solutions or vector fields, also some spring system simulations are shown from some GUI application. I've enjoyed the whole journey since 226.1, I'll surely be on 226.3.

Wonderful wonderful course. Although I am late to the course, I would very much like to finish all 3 courses. Hopefully the coordinators and edx can keep it archived for a couple of months more /:

Like the previous course in this series of 3 courses , the present course exceeded my expectations , but also i felt like exceeding my own expectations because the teaching in this courses is so good an easy to understand whilst learning much and being very valuable . I had no prior knowledge about differential equations yet finished this course with a 100% . So --> try it ! But do the first course first .

Excellent course taught at the university level for science and engineering majors. Lectures were clear, examples were interesting. Problem sets were sufficiently challenging to solidify the material, but not very difficult as some Differential Equations courses can be. I highly recommend this course once you have finished 226.1
