Is introductory differential equations boring? I can take another course and DiffEq is what I am considering mainly because it is mentioned a lot. I have no real need to take this course, unless it is useful in AI. If I take the course it will be taught at a general level in a class of 60, probably mainly to freshmen. --Is there anything about it that a computer can't do better? --Does it introduce interesting concepts? I am not talking about advanced courses in DiffEq since I'm not likely to take those. My alternative is to do a general education requirement such as biology.
