A course extending the Linear Algebra and Calculus studied in first year, with particular emphasis on the application of Mathematics to problems in the Physical and Environmental Sciences. The course combines the study of first- and second- order differential equations, including partial differential equations, with the concepts of linearity and linear superposition to develop mathematical models in such areas as mechanics, population growth and harvesting, chemical reactions, sound, diffusion and wave motion.
