Differential Equations Online Course - Fast Academic Credits!

A popular course for taking online, our Differential Equations course utlizes a modern Differential Equations approach - we forget most of the paper and pencil classical technique - and instead use the modern Calculus&Mathematica curriculum - looking at differential equations for what they mean - not how to solve the (rather trivial) cases you can do by hand. Mathematica is a very powerful tool to obtain the solution of any differential equation (if there is one!), and so ... what does the solution mean? How do you interpret the solution? What does the solution's graph mean? What if there are slight changes to the differential equation? What is a driver? An Oscillator?

This modern approach to Differential Equations is a superior approach for data science, physics, economics, and all branches of science that use mathematics (i.e. all of science!).

Review: Course was good and fast. I don't like math so I can't say it was fun or anything. Grader was very nice. Software was ok.

Review: Pros: once you get going, you can go really fast. The visual textbook is pretty cool. The instructors were very responsive. Cons: the movies are great, but the software crashes more than it should. Sometimes it is just a hassle doing things in the software instead of on paper, but once I got used to the software, it was ok.

Review: I have difficulty learning calculus based math, akin to dyslexia when examining the symbolic forms, equations, definitions, and problems. Mathematica based calculus courses allowed me to continue with my studies because of the option of seeing the math expressed as a programming language for which I have no difficulty in interpreting visually and the immediate feedback of graphical representations of functions, equations, or data makes a huge impact on understanding. Mathematica based calculus courses should be the default method of teaching Calculus everywhere.
