About the Course

This course is about differential equations and covers material that all engineers should know. Both basic theory and applications are taught. In the first five weeks we will learn about ordinary differential equations, and in the final week, partial differential equations. The course is composed of 56 short lecture videos, with a few simple problems to solve following each lecture. And after each substantial topic, there is a short practice quiz. Solutions to the problems and practice quizzes can be found in instructor-provided lecture notes. There are a total of six weeks in the course, and at the end of each week there is an assessed quiz. Lecture notes can be downloaded from

Very good course if you want to start using differential equations without any rigorous details. Thanks to professor`s explanation everything is very clear. Good basis to continue to dive deeper.

The instructor and materials were excellent. The quizzes at the end of each section were non-trivial and it's a great course to jumpstart your ability to work with ODEs and PDEs.

Good choice of examples. Love the way you end the video...thanks for watching etc. The personality of the presenter is part of the appeal of the course; great persona. Great course but bits were a bit hazy for me; viz the Re( ) and Im( ) type calculations in getting to the final answer. Could be elaborated on with a fully worked out example, if only in the pdf notes. The W4 diffusion equation parts were rather longer than the rest of the weeks and took a bit of perseverance. Love the practice questions and the pdf notes. Thanks for the course overall I found it interesting, looked forward to the next topic as they rolled along; terminal velocity was a favourite. The diffusion equation not so much. Thank you again for your course which I enjoyed very much.

Great introductory course on differential equations. I enjoyed taking the course, Prof. Jeff has an informal way of getting the point across. Which is a great plus. Some background in calculus is necessary if you want to succeed. All the best.

Excellent course. I would recommend it very highly! The professor starts from the very basics and goes on to tackle highly intricate and interesting problems.

could be better if the material is deeper

Methods are good actually i liked this

Def not enough explanations, sometimes really hard to follow what the professor is doing if you do not have lots of Calculus background as professor skipped huge amounts of calculations as he can do it in his head. Towards the end of the course I was doing more educated guessing and understanding kinda what is happening than actually being able to do it myself as opposed to the beginning of the course!
