### Course description and aims

The purpose of this course is to obtain basic knowledge of mathematics for solving various problems related to engineering and science from an interdisciplinary view point. Focusing on ordinary differential equations, the instructor lectures on basic skills for both theoretical and/or numerical solutions.

### Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
(1) Judge which ordinary equations should be used to express the phenomena of interest.
(2) Solve the problem using theoretical and numerical methods.
(3) Understand the implications of solutions and interpret the phenomena physically.

### Keywords

ordinary differential equations: theoretical solution: numerical solution: interdisciplinary view point: physical interpretation

### Competencies that will be developed

 ✔ Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills ✔ Critical thinking skills ✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills

### Class flow

Lectures mainly consist of classroom teaching with mini-tests. After the end of each chapter, students will do a PC exercise and visualize the solution thereby deepening their physical insight into the phenomena of interest.
