Differential Equations
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=6536&ref=Feed
This set of class notes were developed over many years of teaching Differential Equations to the Engineering students (and some others) at NSAC. It consists of a table of contents linked to 8 other worksheets (cpt 1 notes - cpt 8 notes). The topics are those found in a standard Introduction to Differential Equations course starting with an Introduction through to Fourier Series Methods. These notes are also accompanied by a solutions manual for the exercises found in the various sections of the notes.
I hope they will be as useful for you and your students as they have been for mine.<img src="/view.aspx?si=6536/Untitled-1.jpg" alt="Differential Equations" align="left"/>This set of class notes were developed over many years of teaching Differential Equations to the Engineering students (and some others) at NSAC.

Solving linear differential equations with constant coefficients reduces to an algebraic problem. There is no similar procedure for solving linear differential equations with variable coefficients. With the exception of special types, such as the Cauchy equations, these will generally require the use of the power series techniques for a solution.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4966/seriessoln-07_240.jpg" alt="Series Solutions to Differential Equations" align="left"/>Solving linear differential equations with constant coefficients reduces to an algebraic problem.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4897&ref=Feed
The motion of a pendulum attached to a spring is one of a series of a challenging problems used for students in an introductory differential equations course.They need to describe the motion using a pair of second order differential equations involving the motion of both a spring and a pendulum. Using the numeric solver they can then plot the position vs time.<img src="/view.aspx?si=4897/SpringPendulum_99.jpg" alt="The Spring Pendulum" align="left"/>The motion of a pendulum attached to a spring is one of a series of a challenging problems used for students in an introductory differential equations course.They need to describe the motion using a pair of second order differential equations involving the motion of both a spring and a pendulum.

<p>The motion of two connected pendulums swinging together is a challenging problem for students in an intoductory differential equations course. It challenges them to describe the motion by a pair of second order differential equations using the pendulums' angles of deflection over time.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=4873/thumb.gif" alt="Double Pendulum" align="left"/><p>The motion of two connected pendulums swinging together is a challenging problem for students in an intoductory differential equations course.
