I would like to know if the following would be too heavy while taking E&M and possibly Materials Science.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ENGR 213 Applied Ordinary Differential

Equations (3 credits)

Prerequisite: MATH 204 (Cegep Mathematics 105)

previously or concurrently; MATH 205 (Cegep

Mathematics 203). This course introduces engineering students to the theory and application of

ordinary differential equations. Definition and ter‑

minology, initial-value problems, separable differential equations, linear equations, exact equations,

solutions by substitution, linear models, orthogonal

trajectories, complex numbers, form of complex

numbers: powers and roots, theory: linear equations, homogeneous linear equations with constant

coefficients, undetermined coefficients, variation of

parameters, Cauchy-Euler equation, reduction of

order, linear models: initial value, review of power

series, power series solutions, theory, homogeneous linear systems, solution by diagonalisation,

non-homogeneous linear systems. Eigenvalues

and eigenvectors. Lectures: three hours per

week. Tutorial: two hours per week.

Alongside:

ENGR 233 Applied Advanced Calculus

(3 credits)

Prerequisite: MATH 204 (Cegep Mathematics

105); MATH 205 (Cegep Mathematics 203). This

course introduces engineering students to the

theory and application of advanced calculus.

Functions of several variables, partial derivatives,

total and exact differentials, approximations

with differentials. Tangent plane and normal line

to a surface, directional derivatives, gradient.

Double and triple integrals. Polar, cylindrical,

and spherical coordinates. Change of variables

in double and triple integrals. Vector differential

calculus; divergence, curl, curvature, line

integrals, Green’s theorem, surface integrals,

divergence theorem, applications of divergence

theorem, Stokes’ theorem. Lectures: three hours

per week. Tutorial: two hours per week.

Please note that I have taken (and am rather comfortable with) Linear Algebra.

Bottom line: would the semester be too heavy?

Thanks in advance for any responses.
