Daily Study Group: Introduction to Differential Equations
About This Study Group
Differential equations are widely used for solving problems in natural science, engineering, economics and other fields. In this study group, you will follow the Wolfram U course "Introduction to Differential Equations" and learn about methods for solving differential equations along with their applications to real-world problems.

A Wolfram certified instructor guides each session by sharing short lessons, polling the group to review key concepts, introducing practice problems and answering questions. A certificate of program completion will be awarded to participants who attend online sessions and pass quizzes. Additional certifications are available to those who go on to complete related Wolfram U interactive courses.

Study Group sessions run daily, Monday through Friday. This Study Group begins Monday, November 29, 2021.
