2019 Spring – MAT 2680 Differential Equations – Reitz

A differential equation is an equation that relates a function to one or more of its derivatives. – The above rather boring description does little to convey just how fundamental, widespread, and amazingly effective differential equations are in describing the world around us. – Examples: Anything in motion. Also, many things that are not in motion. Also, many additional things to which the word “motion” does not really apply. – Further examples: spaceships in orbit, populations growing and shrinking, a cup of coffee slowly cooling, springs bouncing, financial markets rising and falling, electrical current flowing through a circuit, ocean waves, sound waves, light waves, vibrations in musical instruments and airplane wings and suspension bridges, – More examples: Pretty much everything. Topics include methods of solving ordinary differential equations and applications to various problems. Course Avatar created at .



Welcome to ESOL022R! The purpose of this course is to provide intensive work on intermediate English language and reading skills necessary for college-level work. This is a second-level reading course in our three-level sequence. The goal of the course is to build strong reading and thinking skills by intensifying the quantity of reading and the level and quality of analysis. Students will read in and out of class. Weekly vocabulary and/or reading comprehension quizzes will build language proficiency and test taking ability. All course work will increase students’ reading comprehension, general knowledge, and facilitate CUNY ACT certification. General Activities include in-class reading of college texts and newspaper articles; vocabulary expansion; in-class study time; group and whole class discussions of issues and ideas expressed in texts; responding to the readings, writing about the readings, and keeping a Reading Log. By the end of the semester, the students should acquire the following competencies: • Identify subject matter/discipline in a given text • Identify author’s point of view and tone • State the main idea of the text • Recognize implied meaning in text • Critically analyze a text • Discuss ideas expressed in a text using college-level vocabulary • Write short summaries • Recognize different text genres, e.g., argumentation, discussion, report, proposal • Understand the role of transitional words • Recognize the writer’s purpose and audience
